Yes, I meant the "Test Manager" role mentioned in:


Sorry to bring the misunderstanding :)

It should be possible, I'll make a quick "fix" this week.

It will not be that easy to make a generic code change, since this will probably change
internal gears of Moztrap. So one thing we could do is to:

    1. update the version 0 test cases
    2. remove the existed version 3.6 and recreate the version 3.6 so that it
    could copy updated test cases from version 0

It could be done just by a few more clicks, very simple :)    

Best wishes,
