    7676The essential property of a milestone is its date.  Trac tickets which are part of a milestone are implicitly due by the milestone date.  In general project management, milestones have FS dependency with some tasks.  Together with dependencies between tasks, this dictates when tasks must be done to keep a project on schedule.

     78Trac milestones are not first-class objects (they lack history and comments that tickets have).  An alternative to Trac milestones is to create a custom ticket type that can be used to set deadlines and have tickets which are required for that ticket scheduled as if they had a milestone with a due date set.  To avoid conceptual conflicts with Trac milestones, I've called that ticket type an ''inchpebble''.  Trac milestones may still be used to group tickets but a milestone may have many inchpebbles which set intermediate dates.
