We are using the releases comments as general updates, like a summary of how the release is doing because we present this information to Executives and Geos on a call we have every month using a report based on release comments. Since keep history of this information (releases comments) is important for us we would like to have the option of cloning a release with the comments included.
We clone releases only when the release was created by mistake in an incorrect product.
Thank you for your idea. In the situation you described, one option would be to use the CSV import to create the new release rather than cloning the release. It is possible to import comments when creating a release via CSV.
At this time given the option above, we are unlikely to implement this idea. We hope you can understand.
