I think it automatically carried over when the subtask was created.

Unfortunately, this is currently non-trivial; the API does allow project creation, but does not allow adding extra tags, or setting color and symbol.

I think this is therefore probably stalled on https://secure.phabricator.com/T5873

Upstream is willing to consider a patch to add color/symbol to the project creation api. Probably would accept extra tags as well. This is a fairly trivial upstream patch. (see https://secure.phabricator.com/T6501#82985)

[Unassigning this task from a non-human assignee]

The upstream changes have been committed and pulled.

@valhallasw: the api now allows setting (and querying) color, icon and tags.
