Currently, when you copy a project there is no possibility to copy the documents it contains (either all or a selection of them).

Concretely we are interested in creating a project template that includes not only wiki pages and issues but also certain basic documents such as for example:
  • An Openproj template we use for planning before the projects formally start
  • An excel sheet we use for projects that need additional monitoring
  • Document templates for lifecycle specific internal deliverables

Isn't this a bug ? The expected behavior for the average user : copying a project means copying everything, not everything except documents.
