Making "hold" more useful

Right now, given the way tickets are displayed, the hold status doesn't seem particularly useful.

I'm in the situation where I am putting one ticket on hold until another is addressed but I already know this ticket will get lost.

What I'd like to be able to do is say "Put ticket 15 on hold until ticket 20 is resolved". Then, when I resolve #20, #15 should be automatically re-opened.

    I doubt ticket dependencies will make their way into Lighthouse any time soon. But that you for the suggestion, it's a pretty cool idea.

    Hold simply refers to that the ticket it's not something that currently needs to be worked on. Ticket dependencies would introduce a whole new ball game into the workflow options.

    At the moment we're working more towards polishing and simplifying the system, and adding in new core features. We have some cool updates around the corner though and then we'll begin to rethink workflow and adding in some more tools/options.

    Fair enough.

    As much as anything else I just wanted to dump the idea out of my head :)
