ListItemFilter Mediawiki Extension

For a while now, I’ve been maintaining my todo lists as backlogs in a Mediawiki repository. I’m regularly deriving sprints from these backlogs for my current task lists. This means identifying important or urgent items that can be addressed next, for really huge backlogs this can be quite tedious.

A SpecialPage extension that I’ve recently implemented now helps me through the process. Using it, I’m automatically getting a filtered list of all “IMPORTANT:”, “URGENT:” or otherwise classified list items. The special page can be used per-se or via template inclusion from another wiki page. The extension page at mediawiki.org has more details.

The Mediawiki extension page is here: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:ListItemFilter

The GitHub page for downloads is here: https://github.com/tim-janik/ListItemFilter
