good point, missed that ;-)

I just looked a bit deeper into that, agreed. It only needs the person
who closes a task to give a bit attention to the "related tasks" field
(which I didn't do up to now -- IMO this field is a bit too hidden).
Maybe FS could display the number of related tasks in the overview at
the top? Or, even better, the task IDs?

Close the remaining request and open a new one yourself, indicating
that this was part of a different request possibly?
Using two tasks for request and patch and connecting them is also an
option, but I'm a bit unsure which is better.
