Hi, Garbee:

I agree if the system handles deferred items properly, we wouldn't need to
have a "deferred" bucket. The only reason to have it is so that data doesn't
skew the current project milestone status.

As far as keeping separated projects, it essentially requires us to go in to
each project to see status, issues, etc., and to update milestones. Giving
that TBG allows for sub projects, I'm not sure what UX issues would arise by
having a master project. But that's why I thought we should meet to discuss
and test this proposed organization.

 So, is there a time you and I can meet to set up a test of the master
project idea? Or should we proceed another way?

Julee

This "deferred" system seems illogical. We can assign the issues to a
milestone, or leave them unassigned which can be the "deferred" status.
Having a separate project structure just for that is wasteful and confusing
imho. Either we go with a master project (assuming sub-projects actually
have a good UX) or we keep separated projects, as Bugzilla had components,
and tweak from there as we need. That keeps thing simple and
straightforward.
