I did some research on cloning JIRA issues with subtasks and the 
possibility of setting up a "template" of JIRA issues corresponding to 
the newly documented Fluid project process.  Here's what I found:

1. Cloned JIRA issues can now also clone subtasks.  The newer version of 
JIRA includes this functionality.  Now when cloning an issue, there is a 
checkbox for cloning subtasks of the issue.  The checkbox is checked by 
default.  The cloned issue must have subtasks for this function to do

2. JIRA can be scripted with a scripting language called Jelly.  By 
writing and running a Jelly script, it appears possible to automate the 
administrative process of creating/cloning the JIRA tasks that map to 
the Fluid process for each component.
