      Description

      Subtasks in JIRA 3.1 are very handy, but since they are full-blown JIRA issues, creating them becomes a bigger burden than it should be.

      In particular, I think subtasks should inherit, by default, some of the fields from the parent task, in particular

      -Priority
      -Component
      -Affects Version
      -Fix For Version

      It's ok if they can still be modified but, when creating the subtask, those fields should be initialized to the parent's value.
