Although Iím the maintainer of that package, I didnít get to create
the PKGBUILD myself.

I found another nice way to use flo at work today. When Iím about to
work on an item, then I start by removing it off the list. That way I
hinder myself to do something else Ė if I do, then I have to add it
back; which I donít want to.

Then I add sub-tasks:

$ f 1. commit unchecked code
$ f 2. write draft of test for whatever_I_might_be_working_on
$ f 3. get Firstname Lastname to code review my test
$ f 4. polish
$ f 5. test performance of the test
$ f 6. see if what I learn from writing this test can improve similar tests
$ f 7. commit

Then I do the same with these things as I did with the task itself;
once I remove an item, then I have to do it.

The alias below lists all things that starts with two spaces, followed
by one to many digits, a dot, and then a space. Itís pretty solid, as
itís not possible to type in two spaces with floís short syntax (nice
side effect of how arguments work.)

alias ff='flo | grep -E " [[:digit:]]+\. "'

Sub-tasks might be overkill in many cases. Managing them might hinder
one getting things doneÖ not sure yetÖ
