New Developer/Translator Needed ?

Hi all,

I was wondering if Whups needs any developers or translators (I could
translate to Icelandic) and if so I'm volunteering to help with Whups in
any way I can :)

This intrest came after a little discussion on pear.qa mailinglist, and
also I've always wanted to help in anyway with Horde but wasn't sure how
:)

Possible change - numeric priorities?

What would folks think of just having priority be a number from 0 to 100? Would
make priorities more computer-processable and simpler.

Yeah, but less intuitive for users. I already disliked the change in Nag,
though I understand it was necessary.

Sure! Translations are always great, and code is often even better. There's
definitely plenty to do on Whups as we try to polish it towards a 1.0 release.

Cool. There are a number of things in whups/docs/TODO, and there are several
enhancement tickets at http://bugs.horde.org/ in the Whups queue. Any of those
are definitely fair game.

Well I already name priorities with numbers at the start (and the default
priorities do that too) like '1. Low', '2. Medium' etc.. That's just enough to
make it possible to order columns by priority, but might not be enough for
other stuff. What kind of processing were you thinking about?

I'm not sure, really. I guess the defaults like that are more flexible 
and good
enough. Was just an idea. :)

I number my priorities, too. I have 1. Urgent, 2. High, 3. Normal, 4. Low, 5.

Re: Fwd: Re: Possible change - numeric priorities?


Regardless of if the default comes with 100 priorities or not, I think
it would be good to somehow document the priorities. That is, choose
what you want to call them, and how many there are, but 1 is always the
highest. Or always the lowest. Whatever.

Do you think that perhaps what's required first is to bring nag and 
whups closer
together, maybe even merging them into a single app? ie. really create 
a single
task list rather than only creating a single set of 'priorities' or 'priority
areas'. I often find myself wondering whether something I have on my list is a
'task' or a 'ticket'.

yes I think this reflects the way I (should) do things too. It's 
possible to get
most of the way towards this by having separate task lists/queues for each of
those areas, then having the ability to assign a priority value to a task
list/queue (as well as to individual items inside the task list/queue). The
system should then be able to prioritise tasks across multiple task lists by
some combination of the two sets of values. Maybe..?

Not that you asked, but I'd say no.  Many users use nag as a personal
todo list (buy milk, walk dog, pay bills, etc) which would not lend itself
to using whups.  Whups of course can not be reduced to nag.  So I'd
say this would be a bad thing.
