Description

I open a new ticket, just to split the request in two seperate ones.

This refers to #12793.

It would be nice to have a tracker type "Task" like described in #12793.
This should only be creatable for contributors or above. Maybe this improves the workflow handling, by defining some tasks which should be done like "Merge code in branch...", "Remove deprecated code", "Update Changelog for Release" or "Update wiki".

These are tickets which wont be good categorized with a defect, feature or something else.
With a "Task"-Tracker, those tasks could be easier grouped.

Best regards,
Daniel

I like the idea, perhaps we even make some kind of checklist, for example for new releases:
  • Update wiki
  • Update changelog
  • Notify users by sending email to a mailing list
  • ...

Agreed if this is not a public tracker (I would even remove Patch tracker in favor of some "patch attached" custom field) but then I'm not sure it would be of a great help, sorry.

Well this is what I've meaned in my comment on #12793-3. Just restrict it to certain persons.

I've seen such Task trackers in some other open source projects which restricts me to comment on these tasks, but I can't create one unless I'm in a certain group. But this way, there is a little bit more transparency which must be done until the next major/minor release.
