Anything in <SCRIPT> Tags is automatically ignored. I assume you are
using the WYSIWYG editor on the test case creation screen.
The reason for this is to prevent XSS attacks where your users security
could be compromised. If you need this type of information, consider
using the XML or CSV import or using the webservice to create the

You can modify the template that creates the test case to pass
priority=<your priority> and that should populate it for you.

That was considered excessive according to our users so we did not
included it. If you want to include the comments, you will have to
modify the code pretty heavily. In general, i would discourage it,
since the information is in the bug which is easily accessible from
the test case via a link.

You should be able to group by any other field and have it work. I did
not write the grouping as that was part of the extjs library. Perhaps
I don't understand what you are trying to do though.

That should be fairly simple to add.
