Hi - have been using Git projects in the OGC work I'm doing to help
organise and visualise at lerast some minimal sense of priortisation.
Kanban doesnt really help you much with dependencies - unless you create a
column explicitly for "waiting on other issues to unblock"

You can have issues appearing in multiple projects - so that seems OK.  Its
not a high overhead and does give a visual feel, so it at least will help
the coordinators with prioritisation I feel.
