There are projects that the Android and iOS teams use to categorically track their tasks. These include:
One downside of having all of these projects is that sometimes users file tasks against them, rather than Wikipedia-iOS-App-Backlog or Wikipedia-Android-App-Backlog where the teams can triage. This causes the tasks to fall out of process and get ignored.
Android has mitigated this via Herald (H168), but it's an inelegant approach because it must be manually updated. iOS is considering a Herald rule, too.
An alternative approach would be to have these projects as subprojects of the Apps teams parent backlogs. My understanding is that by doing so, tasks tagged with the subproject will automatically receive the parent project.
Thoughts from the Project Admins?
