Summary0005650: Investigate/Implement Enhanced Custom Field support

Provisional Ideas:

1, Allow custom fields for more object types:
a) users
b) machine profiles
c) files
d) bugnotes.

2, Possibly investigate 'multi-language custom field value support e.g. enumerations in localized language. (possibly only through additional of an individual custom_function for each enum). Presently this is not possible as we store the english value.

3, Improved administration screen to facilitate 1/2. Maybe allow 'required on X' options for additional bugs states e.g. we currently support resolved/closed. Make this generic so users can implement custom fields for their own states.

TagsNo tags attached.

This will be a very good feature to have.

About point 3:
I had modified 'required on resolved' to work with integer instead of boolean. This way i can specify the lower status in which the field appears.
But i think it should be a lower/higher status, or better, a multiselect list where the administrator can select each status (s)he wants the field appears.

About point 1.a:
It will be useful Mantis notifies the user selected on the custom field. Or let the admin define it.

Is there any way through which I can show custom field in change_status_page .Here Custom field should not be required field.
