|Summary||0005114: duplicate_id in mantis_bug_table should be deprecated and eventually removed|
When I look through the code, I don't see any use for the duplicate_id in the mantis_bug_table that should not instead be handled by the relationship subsystem. In fact, I could not find any use of the column more advanced than simply regurgitating the value to the user. It seems that the graphs and other higher order behavior of duplicate bugs uses the relationship subsystem instead.
To prevent confusion of future developers and users, I suggest the code that references this column be removed.
