|Summary||0025506: configuration 'subprojects_enabled' = OFF does not seem to work|
Seems like the option
Can we derectly remove this option? becuse at the current state, does not add any value.

The current concept of sub-projects is questionable, not well documented, decreases performance and there are certainly bugs in it.
OK, that makes sense, if this option is to avoid the creation of subprojects by the administrators.
i already commented on that topic too, that there is a severe functionality regression if removing it.
Turning off sub-projects is the logical goal of the config option. At one point, it may be just hiding sub-projects and disabling their creation, but in the future, we could add checks to remove extra/expensive queries that support sub-projects, etc. Hence, I wouldn't document that it just disables creation of sub-projects, but this can evolve over time. I would hope that we have this feature disable by default for future versions.
Then document that!
