To Be Done (TBD)
Markings to place in Wiki Pages
- TBD - generic To Be Done
- TBD topic - whole topic needs to be worked on. Used as a placeholder when I want to create a definition of a phrase so that it appears in the terminology, but where I am not yet ready to actually write up a proper description.
Q: might it be better to have templates?:
This could allow for more text.
Also stands for
- To Be Done
- To Be Delivered
- To Be Documented
- To Be Deposited
- To Be Determined
Occasionally, rarely, "To Be Deleted". Better to call that "Remove Me (RM)".
How to find stuff that needs to be worked on
TBD: time estimates, so you can search for, e.g. a 30 minute fix, or a 4 hour task, or ...
Manually maintained pages
Searching for TBD markings inside pages
- Search for "TBD" or "tbd" in text
- Search for pages marked "TBD-topic" - whole topic needed
- older attempts marked "TBD topic", etc., but I was not able to create a search link for that.
