MySQL, MySQL Forge

Small Feature Addition to MySQL Forge

OK, so on Wednesday morning, in Latvia, Monty came up to me and asked if I could add a feature to the MySQL Forge Worklog system to help his team and others track dependencies between worklog tasks. Internally, our worklog system allows developers to track whether one task is dependent upon the completion of another task. So, I took a couple hours and hacked in this functionality to the public Forge worklog system. If a task has dependent “child” tasks, then a new tab in the worklog display shows those dependent tasks. Shown on the right is the “super-task” for the Maria project, which has a number of direct child tasks (some of which have child tasks themselves). As you can see, the “Dependent Tasks” tab now shows these sub-tasks. Enjoy.
