Search with uncimpleted subtasks

Hello,

In my implementation of a "gtd-like" system, I have tasks whose "context" is "PROJECT", destined to have subtasks until totally done.

For their review, I'd ideally like to e able to make a search of all tasks which
a) have a context of "PROJECT"
AND
b) have no subtasks which are not completed

The trouble is the second part. Is there a way or are there plans to have a way to do this?

Thanks

Edit: sorry for the typo in the subject title - I'm unable to edit it.. :-(

Why not try the search:

Checked Off - no
AND
Is Subtask - Yes
AND
Context is Project

Thanks for the idea, but that won't work, sadly. It would show "projects" that are also subtasks, whereas I want "projects" which don't have an active subtask.

The closest to what I want is

Checked Off - no
AND
Context is Project
AND
Has Subtasks - no

But if it the "project" has a completed subtask, it won't appear on my search. My only workaround is to delete or remove completed subtasks from the parrent, but that's not so nice because it removes possibly useful reference to recently completed tasks.

What I'd really need is something like

Has subtask which is not checked off - no

or somehow the ability to generally search based on a property of possibly existing subtasks.

It is not currently possible to search for subtasks with a condition that is based on the parent (IE, show subtasks with a parent that has a folder of X). This is something that is on our to-do list.

Is there a view of the to-do list so we can see how far up/down it is on the list (Think SCRUM product backlog)
