Scheduling Trac tickets


Notice: This plugin is in alpha stage.

This plugin is a scheduling algorithm for Trac tickets. If each ticket is assigned an effort, they can be scheduled based on their owner and priority and milestone. Then a Gantt chart can be generated.

It displays all scheduled tickets as usual together with their milestones. The latter ones are displayed in black if the milestone due date is met, or in red otherwise.

Scheduling is influenced by:

  • Team availability: Who is available how many hours a days? Availabilities can be maintained under Admin.
  • Blocking tickets (future).

A personal time table displays the next tickets a developer should work at:

Team avalabilities can be maintained:

This plugin also works in combination with the EstimationToolsPlugin:
