0007891: Display Testcase Status in Add/remove Testcase page
Add/Remove testcases shows for each testcase the importance according to the selected version.

To avoid using not mature testcases ("draft" or "review in progress"), displaying the status of each testcase is needed.

The information should be updated according to the selected testcase version

If I'm not wrong a feature already exists tha EXCLUDE test case with a status in a certain domain, for being displayed on ADD/REMOVE TEST CASE feature.
would you mind to check?
If this is true, this implementation can be considered not as useful as can seem.

Your first think was to use "hideTestCaseWithStatusIn" config option to exclude "Draft" and "Review in progress" testcases, but the use case is a bit different here.

- "Obsolete" testcases should be hidden, because they won't be used anymore (related requirement is obsolete too)
- "Draft" testcases shouldn't be hidden, because the testplan content could be wrong if the leader doesn't see that there is a problem with the testcase status during testplan content definition (the requirement must be fully tested). In a 1000+ testcases tree, hard to see that 1 or 2 "Draft" testcases are missing if they are hidden. Filter can be an option, but filters applies only to the last version of a testcase. We need to access status of each version.

==> Your idea is to dynamically display status for each version of a testcase, and then display a warning message near from testcase status when the status is listed in a new config option that could be named "warningTestCaseWithStatusIn". We plan to provide PR for this new option in another issue very soon.

Please consider a very very simple implementation, IMHO best is to provide this info in the combo box with test case version, is the cleanest way.
In addition request PR only when things have been fully tested to avoid commit that are only revert (as I've seen today).

Implementation is inspired from testcase importance management to be coherent.
I will forward your note about revert in github history to dev team.

Coerence is not important, what is important that performance impact will be low.

It's not clear for me what feature are you talking about, would you mind to add a screenshot of current feature?

It would be great also to have some screenshot before be able to analize if PR will be accepted or rejected.

Please when implementing this has to remain as is:

Test cases with Latest Version with status with one of these values (Obsolete,Future) will not be displayed in this screen
2017-03-21 12:53   
Here is an example of an attachment.

You can see that versions 5 and 6 are not visible because they are in "obsolete" and "future" state.
