Copy issue status when issue is copied
|Assignee:||Eric Davis||% Done:|
Currently, when a project is copied (using 'copy' link in the Administration view), the issues are copied, but the statuses of the issues are not: all issues end up in the default New status. This is undesirable: issues that are closed, etc in the source project should retain their status in the copied project. The proposed one-liner patch implements this.
Assigning to the author of the copy functionality.

- Status changed from New to 7
I might not be able to use this patch because that method (
Issue#copy_from) is used by other parts of Redmine also. If I can't change the status there I could put something similar into
Project#copy, which would have a similar result.

Thanks for looking into this.
I defer to your judgement, but shouldn't Issue#copy_from copy the status regardless of where it is called from? Seems like code that requires a specific status on issues it copies should ensure the condition is satisfied by simply setting it.
