This is a Q1 KR worded as "The Traffic subteam has a phabricator workboard which succinctly tracks active, ongoing work and current issues".
The basic (but still slightly evolving) plan is to create a new tag named "traffic-icebox", move most of our stale tasks there and at least loosely organize them by category columns reflecting the nature of the stale ticket, and have our primary "traffic" tag contain only a relatively small set of tasks which includes both active incoming triage issues for the team as well as all of our planned work that's active and actionable or in near-term planning, all organized in a more Kanban-ish style rather than by-topic/nature as in past efforts.
The mechanics of the changes are still in flux. We'll aim to minimize disruption via either silent bulk moves, or by simply renaming the existing "traffic" tag to become "traffic-icebox" directly, and then creating a new fresh "traffic" tag and moving the smaller active set back into the new version of the traffic tag. After the basic tag split, as part of this KR we'll do a relatively-lightweight review of all icebox tasks for any that can be quickly resolved/closed or need pings to figure out any remaining steps.
In future quarters, beyond this KR, we'll look at various ways we could better-organize the remaining important information from these icebox tasks for future planning.
