Export requirement traceability reports from Jira

The traceability-report-fo.vm template exports the input Jira issues (the "source") and the issues reachable from the input issues along issue links and parent-sub-task relationships recursively up to a maximum distance. While the leftmost column describes the link type and its distance from the source, it also adds the currently selected columns in the right, making this an easily configurable way to visualize dependencies between requirements, tasks, tests, bugs and any types of issues.
