"Create and continue" should default issue fields to previous issue's values
When creating a bunch of issues, I'd probably like to file them to a same target. It would make sense to pre-fill not only Tracker, but maybe all fields with values of previously created issue - except for Subject and Description.
It makes sense to me to pre-fill:
- Target version
- (maybe) Due date
- any custom fields

- when I click on "copy", some field-data get copied correct, but only Status "New" and the actual Status of the base-issue is selectable.
- when selecting "Create and continue" the appearing issue-edit-form has all status selectable, but no field-data from the base-issue is copied - which would be the expected behavior, when continuing the copy-function.

I would like to see this too.
I get around it by setting the fields I want to preserve in the GET parameters of the URL before I submit an issue, so for example:
Then after submitting the issue, I press the browser's back button to get back to the above URL so I can enter another issue with those same fields pre-filled.
