#36 Issue time tracking

Chris Lim

We need to have a facility to determine how much time is spent working on an issue.

User could provide estimated time upon starting to resolve an issue and provide actual time logs.

Reports can be generated based on time estimates versus actuals.

    I would be interested to see some plugin mechanis, that enables to install plugis / modules for enhancement. This means, you can install the time tracking plugin, but you must not. It's an add-on. You can also install time-budgeting add-on, or a order management add-on, billing add-on, etc. I mean, I talk about modularity. It's sure not an easy thing to do, but I believe that we could research plugin & dependency management mechanisms, install / update, etc. Make this thing modular, enhanceable. Often such mechanism rely on some genius simple model (read "Better, Faster, Lighter Java" - it contains information about such plugin mechanisms. Or study the Eclipse plugin mechanism...

    I think that time tracking should not be part of the core functionality of itracker, because maybe not everybody wants it.

    OK. I understand that not everybody might not want to to have this feature. Definitely a plugin mechanism is an overkill for now. Someday maybe. :)

    A milder approach will be to have a status tagged to an issue to monitor in-progress issues.
