Thank you. I suspected this. But, of course, "Make a copy" is not a
really good naming of this. Any chance that this link get's a pop-up by
default explaining what it's use is?

In fact, even if everything in a tracker site is easily adjustable,
wouldn't it be a good idea to add some pop-ups to the classic template
and explaining "Title", "Priority", "Superseder", "Assigned To",
"Status", "Nosy List", "Keywords", etc.?

Especially "Superseder" and "Nosy List" are not immediately clear for
new users. Having a default description there would be wonderful.
