Ability to choose, in administration page, the behaviour of status during copying issues
|Assignee:||Jean-Philippe Lang||% Done:|
The current behaviour of copying issues is to keep status : If we copy a closed issue I create a new closed one in Redmine 2.5.2.
This behaviour could be set in administration.
Administrator could choose if copying issues keep original status (current behaviour) or set the status to default one.
In fact, due to workflows, preserve status can forbid users to work on issues, if original status is used. Because, they can't change the status of copied issue.
Another element is that, currently copying an issue give the ability to a user to choose too much values of status for a copied issue during creation (It seems there is no relation between copying issue and workflows during create a copying issue).

It means that the administration permits to change the default behaviour but user can choose, during the copying operation, among the original status and the default one.
In one case, if administrator choose the default one, user have this status by default during copying operation without others modifications and in the other case, user have the orginal status. In theses two cases, user can choose in the two types of status.
