Re: [mylyn-dev] GSoC 2012 - Activity tracing for Tasks, Builds, Reviews and Commits
Thanks for filing the bug. There is also a high-level theme bug that
captures some of the related discussions:
355974: [theme] improve traceability for artifacts associated with tasks
Maarten, your suggestion sounds very interesting but it's out of scope
of the Mylyn project to provide team planning or reporting
functionality. We could consider making an extensible dashboard that
would enable other tools to provide reporting but I would like to
focus on the traceability aspect in the Summer of Code project. My
sense is that the best first step would be a visualization for the
task editor before implementing a dashboard.
