I'm using last SVN version of redmine. I've tryed to copy a project.
I select this:

 Members (1)
 Versions (4)
 Issue categories (0)
 Issues (8)
 Custom queries (0)
 Forums (0)
 Wiki pages (0)

The members, version are copied but not the issues. It doesn't create new issues for this project.

Sorry, can't reproduce.

Might be some plugin issue?

I also met this problem, I downloaded and installed the lastest Bitnami Redmine, 'bitnami-redmine-2.0.3-1-windows-installer-r01.exe'. When I copy a project, the members, version are copied but not the issues, i.e. the issues from the original project are not copied into the new project.
Look forward your help,

I also looked at the production.log file, and see the message,
"Project#copy_issues: issue #300 could not be copied: ..."
then I locate the code in the project.rb file,
def copy_issues(project)
if new_issue.new_record? "Project#copy_issues: issue ##{} could not be copied: #{new_issue.errors.full_messages}" if logger &&
issues_map[] = new_issue
issues_map[] = new_issue unless new_issue.new_record?
but I couldn't figure it out.

I also look at ChangeLog from 0.8 to 2.0.3, didn't find about this, is this functionality already implemented in the latest Redmine?

By the way, is there an wasy way to change Bitnami Redmine from production to development mode so I don't have to restart the service (could take couple minutes) everytime I modify some code to debug it.

Thanks much for your help and advice!

This is possible when I move the issue to the new project.
