Q: How does site copy handle locked files?
A: (They didn’t answer, but I think it will make a copy of the last saved version.)
Q: How does it hand internal asset references? One of
the problems we have when we copy now with 6.10.9 is
“hotlinking” images (or other assets).
A: It keeps local references local to the copied site,
and external references (_common) stay external.
Common assets (e.g. _common) need to exist before a site is copied.
