Feature #188

Allow saving time entries without issue ID

Right now Orangutan requires issue ID to be set for a task. If it is not set Orangutan refuses to submit a task.

This is not how it should behave... The issue is optional in Redmine (the field is not required in the time entry dialog; database field issue_id can be NULL). If so Orangutan should allow empty issue too.

Actually the issue ID is the only value which cannot be guessed by Orangutan currently. Making this value optional will solve some of the problems.

Also a special context should be added allowing to “clear” the main issue and the task issue. Example:

User: Clear the default issue
