What does ancestor indirect mean?
An issue will have a red X associated with it if the current version of one of the elements in that stream is not a direct descendant of the head version of the element in the change package.
For example, look at the changes tab for the issue with the red X, you will see something like the following:
Name In Folder Version Basis Version
foo.c \dir\foo.c 128/1 200/2
bar.c \dir\bar.c 128/2 290/3
Open the browse version GUI for each element. The virtual version of foo.c and bar.c in the current stream need to point to the head version of the change package.
In this case, the virtual version of foo.c in the stream needs to point to the real version 128/1 and the virtual version of bar.c in the stream needs to point to the real version 128/2. If one of those virtual versions does not make a direct connection (through black ancestry lines seen in the browse version GUI) then the issue will be marked with a red x and have a status of ancestor indirect.
