Repetitive tasks ?
The issue just came up to me, while I was doing some work that comes up every quarter.
I have some tasks coming up endless cycling, i.e. the preparation of mothly/quartery/yearly reports.
I would appreciate
- a type of tracker that goes back to some "open" state (preferably "assigned") on predefined intervals, or
- some kind of facility that spawns a new ticket at those predefined intervals
The definiton part could be an extension to the "new ticket" form, i.e.
[ ] Resurrect ticket every [<num>] [days/weeks/months/years], beginning on [date], to status [...].
[ ] Repeat ticket creation every [<num>] [days/weeks/months/years], beginning on [date].
There should be a special permission to make tickets repetitive, and management could be done on the standard ticket edit form.

OK - I've read again over this ticket and #1176 along with the comments and contemplated over 'em.
The requested features look similar, and I admit that they basically propose the same thing. I presume that if the feature gets implemented in a way like I've outlined it detailed in #1176#note-46, it will probably fit both requests good enough to satisfy both.
