or better yet, make estimate immutable and then add a "time remaining" field. This field is autodecremented by the amount of any hours added but is also changeable. This way gives you a glimpes into 'how many hours are left' in addition to 'how is this ticket/milestone doing compared to the orig estimate'.

I think this would be easier for developers to gauge "how many hours do I have remaining" as opposed to "total amount of work that has been done +PLUS+ the amount of estimated work that needs to be done"

This would enable someone to write a plugin later to do a little bit of statistical analysis for someone based on their over/under estimating.

failed to mention that "time remaining" is initially populated with the estimate.

for an example of this approach, please see the timing and estimating patch:

  • Priority changed from normal to lowest
  • Severity changed from normal to minor
  • Summary changed from maintain orig estiamted to Develope a trac plugin / greasemonkey script to count down the hours from an initial estimate

Thanks for the detailed ticket, however the company I work for that I developed this for does not use it this way, so I am not particularly interested in developing this usage case.

That said, this could very easily be implemented as a Greasemonkey/Trixie javascript, and probably with only minimally more effort, as another trac plugin built atop of this one. If you develop one, I would be more than happy to include it in the main repository and/or advertise for you in the instruction manual / main page.

Please keep me informed if you need any help or make any progress,
