Having been working on redoing the subtask dependencies working in Flyspray, this on face value looked like quite a simple exercise in fixing a few bugs, but actually was signficantly more complex and some of the areas of interest need to be considered in terms of the effect on the overall usage of the application

For example when looking at a bug is better to have more information on the page to make your decision on what to do next easier (but by definition a more complex user interface) or less information (a cleaner interface but with more navigation required to get to the information)

anyway where i ultimately got to was the image below, however it will be intersting to see the feedback that is given when it goes out in the wild.
