Description

Upstream task: Add support for personal workboards

I would like to use Phabricator to manage a personal Kanban board. I tend to work on many small issues spanning multiple projects and teams and I have found that having a single place to track work in progress and completed work makes communication with management and clients about my personal availability and priorities easier. I have been using external tools (GitHub and HuBoard) for this tracking, but this suffers from the same sort of synchronization and discoverability issues as WMF teams who have chosen to use external tracking tools to manage their cumulative backlogs.

I propose creating a standardized faux namespace such as "User-" or "Personal-" which would be combined with a username for such per-user tracking projects. "User-" seems like a nice choice for the color of this bike shed due to the correlation with the wiki's User namespace.


Please note: If you do not plan to track state / progress via workboard columns, in many cases, using a personal dashboard can be sufficient and less noisy for all other Phabricator users (as no user project tags get added in tasks).
For example, you can add panels to display your assigned tasks and your authored tasks to your dashboard.
Or for tasks you'd like to watch, using personal, non-public flags and creating a panel (via "Search For: Flags") to list all your flagged tasks in a panel on your dashboard.
