Not long after my last Org-mode post, we started planning for a new release cycle at work. Previously, I was tracking individual issues or small features as level-1 headlines with action items immediately underneath as level-2 headlines with the TODO keyword. Now though, I was going to need to keep track of an entire collection of interrelated features (an 'epic' in the Agile terminology), not all of which would be things I would work on. Clearly I needed to adjust some things to keep a handle on it all.
The New Structure
This process added a couple of layers of complexity, so I started with deeper nested headlines.
Roughly speaking, level-1 headlines now each correspond to a high-level epic, which would then contain multiple level-2 story or individual feature headlines. For a while I also created level-2 headlines that would capture notes and so forth, but as things proceeded I moved away from that (more on this in the next sub-section).
