Since we are going from 5.2 to 6.2, I can't use this plug-in until it is available on 6.2.

Very helpful plugin but for me needs few improvements for example check list with modules to clone. Very often I need to clone project but without versions. Now after cloning I need to delete several dozen of unnecessary versions.

Cloned projects seem to have problems with permissions. I am unable to assign users to project roles in cloned projects. It would be great to see this fixed.

This plugin seems to have a tendency to break custom field contexts. Try creating couple of projects with the same custom field and different contexts, then clone some of the projects and suddenly contexts in originating projects are broken. Very annoying.
