|Summary||0006599: Don't show all subprojects in a parent project|
If I have a parent project containing 5 subprojects I see on view_all_bug_page not only the bugs of the parent project but also all bugs of the 5 subprojects. This is confusing and not very senseful in our company. I would like to change that I can only see the bugs of the current project and not of all subprojects (expect I have filtered for these bugs). Maybe this can be done with a configuration parameter.

I would echo leaving this behavior configurable.
This feature (visiblity into subprojects) was actually one of the main reasons I selected Mantis over other bug trackers. I plan on having two top-level projects which serve as little more than a mechanism by which to group their sub-projects, making things convenient for the managers.
Ok, maybe a filter for sub-projects resolves my feature request. If I can filter for specific, none or all sub-projects would totally satisfy my request. But the default value for such a filter should be configurable. I prefer a default value to not show the sub-projects and when I understand mlovell right he would need a default value to show all sub-projects (like current behaviour).
The proposals in 0006599:0012094 seem fine with me; being able to configure sub-project visibility seems like a neat feature. Perhaps project View Status (public/private) could be used for this purpose?
