#786 closed enhancement (fixed)

Milestones should be reached/closed manually

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: Christopher Lenz
Priority: high Milestone: 0.9
Component: roadmap Version: 0.8
Severity: normal Keywords:

API Changes:
Internal Changes:


Milestones dates that have been reached are automatically removed from the milestone view and added to the timeline view when they are reached, regardless of whether there are still open issues/tickets associated with the milestone.

It would be better if the milestone had to be to be manually closed, with some kind of error or alarm mark up appearing in the milestone view, showing how many days late the milestone is.

Alternative: milestones can be automatically closed (as they are now) only if there are no open tickets associated with them (should this be a configuration option?).

This is a good point which I've been thinking about too. Actually, I'd also prefer that milestones would need to be marked as completed manually. The automatic completion is a bit weird.

Changing this would basically result in having to dates associated with the milestone: the estimatated completion date and the actual completion date. Which makes a lot of sense.

That 'to dates' should have been 'two dates', obviously.

Milestone: 0.8
Status: newassigned

Considering that milestones have become a more prominent feature in Trac with 0.8, I think this functionality should also go into that milestone. So I'm putting it on my plate.

Milestone: 0.80.9
Priority: normalhigh

Change of mind: this change is too high risk and touches too many places (database schema, timeline, trac-admin) to be included in 0.8. Postponing to 0.9.
