More will become links as things evolve.
Each task has a state and a priority. The state represents it's position in the following life cycle:
- Not started.
- In progress.
The priorities are based on the MoSCoW method, and are explained below:
- The task must be completed for, and is critical to, the next release.
- The task should be completed for the next release, if time/resource allows.
- The task could be completed for the next release, if time/resource allows and all should tasks have first been completed.
- The task's priority is unassigned. This might be because it is pending review, or perhaps because it has already been completed.
