Estimate Dev and Test on Single Ticket

Cc: Trac Release: 1.0


Hello rjollos,

I use trac hours plugin to track the hours spent on test and development of new features. I would like to be able to track these hours independently. That is to say have a total dev hours and a total test hours which wuold add up to into the existing total hours. The same would be true of estimates.

In fact I see the potential need to be able to set up multiple types of both estimate and total hours and have them all cumulate in to an overall total.

What do you think?

Hi Gordy, I've had a chance to fix up some issues with the plugin today and to start looking at the codebase again. I suspect the feature that you suggest will be fairly involved to implement, but I'll keep it in mind and post any ideas I have here.

hi Gordy

Thanks for your suggestion.

Why not using different (sub)-tickets to track hours and estimations independently and consolidate all data (estimations and workload) in a parent ticket. Since your proposal is just to handle 2 categories what if someone else requires new categories to split, lets say, deployment, planning, documentation. it will mean modify again the plugin. On the other hand, it will not fit for everybody as a generic solution.

I think this works better with a sub-tickets' approach. Also, you can use the Comment/Description in order to filter Dev or Test.

Please let me know your feedback it you're still interested.
