How to best deal with lots of tasks?
- Savannah tasks tracker: I don't like it much because it seems tedious to me to enter all tasks, even the tiny ones (it needs one tracker item per task), and set the priorities. Not easy to structure the tasks and their relations (child tasks or dependencies).
- ToDo backlinks: this trick permits to easily create new tasks, move tasks around, group some in a dedicated page where they can be sorted. Priority is not easy to implement. We could follow the keyword by a priority number (ToDo 3), but we then cannot sort the ToDo items site-wide. Or we could make a separate page just for linking high-priority issues, and using the ToDo backlinks for other tasks.
- ZWiki's tasks system is a way to add some fields to a wiki page, such as "Priority". The pro would be the ability to easily categorize tasks by just listing links to them on a "category" page. But this also means each task needs a separate wiki page, which would be as tedious as with Savane. Check www.zwiki.org for an example.
