Planning is the activity where you decide your testing strategy, e.g.,  which covered issues you want to validate, how would you validate them, will it be manual or automated, how will the resources be allocated, when and who will execute the tests. Depending on several factors, you may want to prioritize some of the tests, or focus on specific requirements. 

Although you may plan tests in different ways, we recommend that you use the Test Plan issue specifically for this purpose.

In your Test Plan, you can put the Tests you want to track for a given version and the Test Plan will show you the consolidated results for those Tests. In other words, it will present the latest status of each Test, independent of the number of testing iterations (i.e., Test Execution) you make with them.
