Comment 2 for bug 345575

I think it is a separate bug. It's actually an example of "dependence
by sequence". You must do certain list of things one after the other.
So strictly speaking, right now you have to make substasks to express
this dependence. Maybe we could implement a kind of particular
typesetting that allow to express this directly (numbered list?). I
suggest you open a new bug explaining this.

> In the normal view, sub-tasks always appear in the order in which they have been created. Drag & dropping allows one to reorder the sub-tasks but it's not stored. If you regenerate the view (change a tag selection for example), the sub-tasks are again in their original order.
