I’d like to check my understanding of relationships in RT tickets.
Parent/Child would seem to indicate that a parent issue revealed one or
several smaller issues. Perhaps the parent issue was divided among
several children and closed in favor of them; perhaps it’s an umbrella
for tracking a big project.
Requisite/Dependent (“Depended on by”/“Depends on”) is more clear; you
can’t finish and close the dependent until the requisite is done.
Reference (“Refers to”/“Referred to by”) is a peer relationship,
primarily useful for navigation and relation of interesting tickets.
Any comments on these descriptions is welcome; I’d also love to hear how
folks use these.
