As a rule of thumb, whenever you use SkipChildren or ChangeTo in a 
visitor, the visit stop there. In particular, since a function contract 
is considered somehow as a child of the global it belongs to, the 
contract will not be visited, (and not copied in the new project when 
you have a copy visitor).

By the way, the use of ChangeTo in your code snippet is incorrect: the 
function (and in particular its statements, the varinfos of formals and 
globals, etc.) are shared between original and new projects. In fact, 
ChangeTo g should only be used in a copy visitor if g has been built 
from scratch by the visitor (that must also add to the action queue the 
registration of the new contract if needed). Developer's manual suggests 
to use ChangeDoChildrenPost(g,fun x -> x) instead, to ensure that all 
the nodes will be visited and copied.

Best regards,
E tutto per oggi, a la prossima volta
