Hello all,

I have org-enforce-todo-checkbox-dependencies set to t, and I would like to
simply
mark some tasks as canceled without needing to mess with the checkboxes.

I can press C-u C-u C-u C-c C-t which will override dependencies.  However,
I was
wondering if there's a way for org-mode to automatically not enforce
checkbox dependencies when canceling a parent task?

Thanks,
--Nate

I just stumbled over this as well and I wonder whether someone has found
a solution by now.

One way would be to inhibit the check when passing to the canceled
state.  Another way would be not to count CANCELED among the done
states, but to inhibit it being displayed in the agenda.  I am unsure
which approach would be preferable philosophically.

Thanks
Christoph
