Ryan J Ollos created COMDEV-112:

             Summary: Dynamic calendar and scheduling tools for the Bloodhound issue tracker
                 Key: COMDEV-112
             Project: Community Development
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Comdev
            Reporter: Ryan J Ollos

Apache Bloodhound is a software development collaboration tool, including issue tracking,
wiki and repository browsing (see: Bloodhound extends Trac
( with multiple product support, advanced search functionality,
ticket relations, a simpler installer and sleeker user interface. 


Bloodhound should provide calendar views so that the user can see the schedule of upcoming
work. User should be able to schedule work by interacting with the calendar.

Proposed solution: 

Enhance Bloodhound with the basic feature of a month-long calendar view of a milestone, showing
the milestone due date and due date for tickets. Once the basic calendar view is established,
features that could be incrementally added, in no particular order:
 * Allow the calendar to work at various scopes, rather than simply scoping it to a single
 * Filters for the calendar view. For example: filter by user, milestone, open/closed tickets.
 * Allow tickets to be scheduled by drag 'n drop onto the calendar view.
 * Allow the calendar to be annotated with arbitrary notes/events that do not represent tickets.
 * Scale the view: week, month, year.
 * Embed the calendar views in the query page and milestone pages.

The dynamic features will be implemented in JavaScript, using jQuery and Bootstrap. Given
the general nature of the problem, the developer would need to work with the community to
come up with a concise feature set, by developing a Bloodhound Enhancement Proposal. Significant
room for creativity exists in solving the problem.

Skills needed: 

Bloodhound and Trac are written in Python, HTML and JavaScript, so a moderate dose of these
programming skills are required.
