As a WMF sprint team, we would like the option to measure WIP limits based on card count, to more closely adhere to Kanban standards.
At the moment, WIP limits are shown as a total of Story Points.
This means that
- if a column is filled with un-pointed tasks, the WIP stays at 0. Bugs are commonly 0 points.
- WIP is not measured by the Kanban standard of task count. It is uncommon for Kanban to use WIP with points.
- an option to change a board to show WIP by task count in a column, rather than point total
- preferably, the option is on the board itself, and not in editing the project
