This is a drafted “draft”. It contains notes about “taming” the tool and adapt it to our needs. Ultimately, a real article on “Flyspray” and it's use(in the framework of Khaganat) should emerge.
Enrich this article with your experiences, ideas and finds!
Flyspray is the name of an software we use for task managing. It is used as a list of things to do(todo in English), although it's primary function is to manage bug reports. An interesting presentation to read is available right here and as well as a glossary.
Our task manager(called “Todo”), is available at the address: http://khaganat.ninm.net/todo.
Flyspray is very customizable program, partly via the administrator toolbox but also by manipulating the ergonomics theme. These themes are very simple, just change the css of the sheet.
Tasks can be organized by “projects”.
A first proposal is:
At the top, on the left:
administrator tool box, recess accessible only to administrators(just ask at this point).
Nothing more then the email address that sends the notifications corresponding to nothing(strongly our own mail server!). An interesting point to note: Flyspray works with themes and each project can have it's own theme.
We chose not to have a Category/Task Type etc, but only by Project. Thus we reserve the possibility of having projects being very different in their nature, like the BugTracking(with its own Categories).
The choices shown below are those for non-BugTracking projects.
