#1443 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Introduce "scale" property for tickets

I'd like to propose the implementation of a "scale" property for tickets that specify the amount of work necessary to complete the task, options would just be "high", "normal" and "low". The roadmap view would then have to be modified to take this property into account, so that the progress percentage and bar aren't calculated by the amount of open and closed tickets, but also under consideration of the scale property, giving "high" scale tickets double and "low" scale tickets half the "weight". You often have like 20 open tickets for a project, 5 of them can easily be resolved in no time, 13 are just usual fixes or enhancements, and 2 tickets take a long time to implement, causing the roadmap to be stuck at 90% for quite a long time, which is not the essential problem, but it just doesn't reflect the actual progress of the project.

I don't think that's a good idea:

  • I don't believe it will bring you really any better estimate that way
  • it's somewhat redundant with the severity (some people already want to compress severity and priority in one field, see #919)
  • that's time tracking in disguise: we don't like time tracking, you're uncovered! go away! :)

No, seriously, I think time tracking should not be treated lightly. As elsewhere in Trac, a good user interface that won't get into the way of usability must be found.

See interesting discussions in related tickets #440, #710 and #914 for example.
