Implementing Blocking in Allura

One of the features in GC which is not possible to replicate exactly in Allura 
is the tagging of Issues with BlockedOn and Blocking.  I've tried various ways 
of implementing something similar, but the one I prefer is to use the labels: 
field.  Simply add the labels followed by the issue number in plain text to the 
appropriate issue, e.g.

   In Issue 2178 add a label "BlockedOn 2668"
   In Issue 2668 add a label "Blocking 2178"

This blocking detail then shows up in the search results under the Labels field 
and appears in the headings of the two Issues.  It is not possible to simply 
click on the labels field to get to the other issue of the pair; but if either 
issue number is entered in the search box both issues should appear (sometimes 
along with other issues if they satisfy the simple search).

All Blocked and Blocking issues can be found by a search for labels:Block - 
this is perhaps the best search to use when searching for block pairs.

I've made these changes to the two issues above, which I think are the only 
ones currently involved in blocking; see


If you know of any others please tell me.
