[#209] enable moving trackers across projects.



Detailed description

I thought this was already filed, but I couldn't find it, so this may be a duplicate :-)

Currently, one can move an issue from one tracker (say bugs) to another tracker (feature requests) within a project. An enhancement that would be very useful would be to extend that ability to move trackers across projects.

For example, if we have an issue discovered on 'project A', but it won't be fixed until 'project B' which is a derivative project, it would be nice to be able to just move that tracker item and preserve the original tracker number.

Thanks, Alain. We'll look at that as a possible solution.

The problem with moving issues that that lots of information may be lost as the trackers may not have lots of custom fields in common.

Another approach than the move can be used (and already available).

In project B, create the issue. In project A, you can create a custom field of type 'relation' then use this "relation" to track links between your parent ticket and this one.

The relation type allows navigation between tickets, you can easily navigate from A to B and B to A and you can name your relation.

Please give it a try and tell us here if this solution is acceptable for you.
