> I'm trying to work out a better process for working with one of my 
> clients. They have a fairly large site with a content management 
> system that is constantly a work in progress. When I originally 
> built the site, at one point we said that any new features would 
> have to wait for Version 2. The "Version 2 To-do List" has grown 
> and grown since then (the site has been live for almost two years), 
> with new items being added faster than other items can be completed.
> The client seems to be fairly happy with this arrangement. The 
> problem I am running into is the client forgetting which items she 
> previously asked me to work on right now, and deciding she wants to 
> focus on something else, or just asking me to do seemingly small 
> things that take large chunks of time away from working on larger 
> improvements she wants for the site.
> What I'd like is to have a to-do list that she can see all the 
> time, up-to-date, including the status of items I am working on. 
> I'd also like her to be able to prioritize the list, and change 
> priorities as much as she wants, except for items I am working on 
> already. I think this will give her a clearer idea of how much has 
> yet to be done, how much she has asked for, what I am working on, 
> etc, while also giving her a greater sense of control over what 
> will be done next.
> I'm not exactly sure what such a tool would be called, or if such a 
> thing even exists. Does anyone have any suggestions for something 
> we could use, or possibly something open source that we could use 
> as a starting point?
