Backlog

This page is a live extract of the Timeboxed.org Product Backlog which is used to structure the work to be done on timeboxed.org.
Depending on the topic and the source for the Product Backlog Item (PBI), it is either a feature description, a bullet point list or a user story.

The backlog is both used actively to maintain the blog as well as serving as a live example and offering a basis for discussion and comments. Please be aware though that the main audience of the backlog is myself – some things might be weird, or confusing – please feel free to ask away should that happen.

(Please note: The embedded backlog is not final. Working on it!)
