Code for Plugin: Edit-inline + time estimation
The attached code was written a couple of years ago for the then stable Redmine. The company I worked for, needed this but it was never released to the community. It's unlikely to be maintained but I asked for the code so perhaps someone else can make it available, either as is or as part of their own plug in.
It has two main features:
1) Allows you to edit multiple issues in a table format.
To do this select the issues, right click to edit-inline
2) When editing, if the estimated time field is chosen, it will sum the time.
The idea is to see how much time is allocated to each developer for the next planning cycle (iteration).
The summing works even by groups too, so you can group by user or project (as usual). The intention was to allow summing of all numeric fields but I don't think that was done. Had it been done, you could have a custom field for each iteration's estimate and use that instead of the estimate field. As is, I recommend that you don't save the changes. otherwise the estimate for each task will be overwritten.
I was planning to put this on github, but I'm not familiar with pushing code. And given that it's not going to be maintained, I hope "releasing" it like this is helpful.

This would be really nice to have.
We are working around this completely.
The code is attached to the post.
I also added a plugin: http://www.redmine.org/plugins/edit_inline
Seem like very nice plugin. But i couldn't test it because rake task aborted.
