Hi Nino,

Of course, done! If no special reasons, please add the cases to "Version 0",
it will automatically apply to later versions of the case if "And Later
Versions" checkbox is checked on. The creator only allows an increased
operation of the test base, but do not worry about messing up things when you
try to play them :)

Great question! It is about how we organize the testing. The full strategy and
planning is evolving and I don't think we have a definite tone here :) Though
we have some tenative thoughts.

The current plan, from Litmus experience, is to have a stable test case base,
which we put into different "test suites". Test suites are allowed to include
to a "test run". And the test run is what a tester usually see from the Run
Tests view.

At the moment, the test suites are divided into different priorities (P1, P2,
P3, P4), accordingly we can create test runs based on the priority:

    - For Full Regression Test of a major version is to include all priority
    of cases to a test run.
    - For Regression Test of a bug fix minor version is to include high (P1
    and P2) priority of cases to a test run.

Those were what we did in Litmus era. The good thing of Moztrap is the test
suite and case management is more clear and flexible, we can always create
special test suites on demand, including a particular set of test cases. Then
we can create a particular test run from those test suites.

BTW, you will need to setup a local moztrap instance, or to be a "Manager"
permission to play with all of these management stuff :)
