Allow for the use of different work items and categories in the issue tracker

description

After all, TFS allows for all different kinds of work items, so if CodePlex is really into the TFS spirit, all of the features that work items provide should be provided for us. And not to mention, then the issue tracker could be used to not only report bugs from other users of the software being developed, but it could also be used for the purposes of coordinators and developers assigning and keeping track of tasks. and what if something that someone reports is not a bug but a feature request? Not everything is a "bug".

Did you know that you can change the issue type to "Feature" or "Task" when you log an issue? Coordinators and developers can also edit issues to change this field as well. Many projects are tracking tasks and features this way.

Are there other types of work items that you would be interested in having?

I think it would be cool if CodePlex Supported all of them, and I mentioned this because on most of the projects I have had to post an issue on, there has not been a way to change the type of work item. That field simply didn't exist. But on those, I was never a developer or project coordinator. It's just that if I have a suggestion, I hate logging it as a bug, and so I wanted to ensure a way for those kind of accuracies to not be overlooked.
