Summary0022910: Make all fields optional by default (category, profile)
Description

Do not force users to let every user learn, that one must add awkward and inconsistent "$g_allow_no_category = ON;" and "$g_enable_profiles = OFF;" while the user interface offers a nice way to add custom fields anyway, please.

It just doesn't make any sense and makes Mantis unnecessarily difficult to approach.

TagsNo tags attached.

Custom fields do not offer all the functionality needed to replace field category (e.g. you can assign a user to a category, there are global and project related categories)
Profiles can also not be replaced by custom fields (e.g. you can offer predefined global profiles and users can have their own predefined profiles)

It just doesn't make any sense

Maybe true for you, but not for a lot of existing users.

Do you agree that this issue can be set to resolved as won't fix ?

Perhaps, categories could be auto-disabled and auto-hidden from bug report page if user deletes all categories.

Makes sense if $g_allow_no_category = ON;

Not sure if you are aware that you can hide the category field by removing it in option bug_report_page_fields

$g_bug_report_page_fields = array(
    'additional_info',
    'attachments',
    'due_date',
    'handler',
    'os',
    'os_version',
    'platform',
