If people are interested in Trello we could also explore GitHub 
Projects. The so-called Kanban approach of columns does help visualise 
progress.

https://help.github.com/en/articles/about-project-boards

Git Hub Projects are no where near as pretty or feature rich as Trello 
but do have the basics like check lists on a card (task). They also have 
some integration into GitHub which is where we now edit the documents. 
The same with GitHub Issues integration, though we don't use them so 
much. This might offer us some usability benefits. Would need to 
investigate more

GitHub also offers customisation features that with some code effort 
could allow us to build on Projects and Issues to match our requirements 
eg simplify access. These are: Apps which are UI driven and Actions 
which are driven by GitHub events (like push of new content). Given 
resources I don't think this would be currently a realistic option.
