maybe not the best place to talk about that but...
I'd like to categorize some phab tasks so that I can access them quickly
in the future. At first I thought that tags would be a perfect fit by
creating my own custom tags. But as far as I understood tags are
projects and I'm not allowed to create them.
I suppose that if this feature is protected behind permissions this is
because phab admins do not want someone to pollute the system with
My usecase is:
Sometimes users report queries that are not performing very well.
Usually by reading the query I can identify and classify the cause. This
cause can be something like:
- bad weighting of words in the title
- text analysis issue
- index/db discrepancies
This list is quite vague...
While it's not worth fixing a particular issue that mentions a specific
query it's sometimes helpful to retrieve such tickets (where sometimes I
added a comment) while I'm working on this class of problems:
- just to have more examples to test
- maybe I was wrong with the initial classification and the problem is
Retrieving such tickets is painful today, because I have to rely on
search, not to blame phab developpers, search is hard we all know :)
Today I used the parent/child relationships e.g.
but I don't think it's the
proper approach because when I classify tickets I don't necessarily have
a parent task ready.
Thanks for your suggestions.
