Today a teacher was using the nice new "import from another course" option, but complained that it didn't work for workshops. I also know that backup/restore neglects workshop.
So, shouldn't workshop - one of the most modern and beautiful modules in Moodle -be removed from the core distribution with warnings, solving the "too many options complaints from the competitors?"
I made a remark in the problems area of release 1.6.1, but don't either see solutions in 1.6.2 1.6.3 1.7 1.8
I have been able to duplicate workshops using backup/restore in 1.6.1+, as long as I include user information in the backup.
