Multiple category support (Feature #465)

It is currently only possible to select a single category. Sometimes it happens that a task has to do with more than one category. Obviously, the current drop-down UI is not designed for this kind of thing. I believe there's support for tags in the work, so I'd suggest a similar system for the categories (possibly for the Target versions tool). This may as well end up being useful to assign multiples assignees too (that is to discuss).

Version sharing (#465) + optional inclusion of subprojects in the roadmap view (#2666).

Each version of a project can be shared with:
  • subprojects
  • projects in the project hierarchy: ancestors + descendants (needs versions management permission on the root project)
  • projects in the project tree: root project + all its descendants (same as above)
  • all projects (can be set by admin users only)
  • when sharing a version of a private project with others projects, its name will be visible within the other projects
  • a project with versions used by non descendant projects can not be archived

Having tags would be better than multiple issue categories.

I second that having tags on everything would be a much nicer, general solution to this issue.

Tags are a nice option for this, I agree.
I only miss the possibility of viewing issues of a specific version by tag as it is now possible for categories, priority...
