Missing feature: cross-repository issue-linking and repository references.
#1 Updated by Christopher Green over 8 years ago
So I managed to commit this issue without a description.
We (the CET group) have several related projects (they actually are subprojects according to redmine). The user-visible top-level project, art, is the one most likely to attract issues, even though the problem could easily be in one or more subpackages. We need a way to link issues across projects and/or refer to commits in other repositories. I realize this probably requires an addition to redmine itself but it would be nice if there were already a plugin to allow this, or a way of convincing the authors this was a good thing to do.
If there's any other way of getting what we want short of consolidating the projects into one (not an option), we'd be happy to hear it.

I've flipped the settings flag, which allows cross-project issue references. This is simple, because the issue numbers are global to the redmine site; so that should just work now.
The other piece, how do I reference a commmit/revision in another project, I'm working on.
You can reference wiki pages in other projects, but short of putting in a full-url link,
I'm not seeng a shortcut for revisions in other projects yet.
