|Summary||0009503: Add ability to depend on project versions|
It would be really nice to able to specify a dependency on a project version rather than a specific bug.
Say, for example, I have libraries A and B. B depends on A.
At the moment there is no way to encode the dependency "bug XXX (in B) depends on A version 2.0". You can:

I get your point, but I think that it will complicate the relationships feature. I also think that you always have certain features or bug fixes that you depend on and these features/bug fixes should have a "fixed in version" that you implicitly depend on.
Hence, I think that if we are to implement this, then we can do that by displaying a Version field which has the fixed_in_version for resolved issues and target_version for unresolved issues. Hence, the feature will work exactly the same way as now, but will show this extra attribute as a new column.
