Description jrojcek 2004-10-08 08:24:11 UTC
It might be handy if the user could create a copy of a project. 
This could be useful especially if the user is trying something 
new and wants to do quickly variations of the same project.

Creator is using "Save As..." action for this purpose. The action 
makes a copy of project sources and project settings.

No immediate plans to implement such a thing. Should be considered
alongside delete, rename, & move, I guess (though it is simpler to
implement than any of those).
Comment 2 Jesse Glick 2005-07-29 19:34:28 UTC
Of course the copy operation should omit any subdirs (like nbproject/private/)
which are marked as ignorable by SharabilityQuery.
Comment 3 Jan Lahoda 2006-06-27 09:16:25 UTC
Copy project action has been implemented in NB5.0, I only forgot to close this
