A private project? What?

By private I mean a project with "Restricting Visible To" equal to one person. See

With the assumption that will cause all of the associated tasks to be private to you?

Right. But I think we should default to all public, as per the policy, and see if that doesn't work for anybody. So no need even to test that assumption of privacy.

Yes, all of our projects are public, per policy, you cannot have a private project, only private tasks. Putting tasks in a private project will not make them private.

Andre, is in response to Krenair, or to this task overall?

This task is for a public project for my personal (WMF) use, containing public tasks. T555: Per-user projects for personal work in progress tracking has extended discussion and no firm consensus for or against; IRC discussion summarized here did not raise objections to piloting as many as a dozen more personal projects but people wanted to get your opinion as well before proceeding. What is your opinion?

(I'm not sure if the last comment was for anybody or for me.)

To genreally avoid misunderstandings: "personal" = stuff I (and maybe only I) care about. "private" = stuff that's not visible to everybody.

My previous overall comment pointed to documentation on Phabricator concepts when it comes to handling "private" stuff, as the term "private" was brought up in this task and as I've seen misexpectations in several places about restriction of access to items in Phabricator.

When it comes to my opinion I'll comment in T555.
