ChiliProject is not maintained anymore. Please be advised that there will be no more updates.
We do not recommend that you setup new ChiliProject instances and we urge all existing users to migrate their data to a maintained system, e.g. Redmine. We will provide a migration script later. In the meantime, you can use the instructions by Christian Daehn.
Admin treated as a non-member for projects is confusing (Bug #303)
Did a search and did not see anything on this. If a user is an 'admin', but are not a member of a project, they can do all types of things just like they were a member, but not change the issue status. If I remember correctly, it should be pretty easy to allow an admin to have allowable statuses of all that are available in the project. Either way, this is an issue we get a lot of questions about that is non-intuitive. Fixing this would make things seem more natural I believe.
