Taskwarrior end of year sprint renaming
The usual yearly ritual:
Here a couple of things are interesting. Firstly,
sprint.is:$o means basically
sprint==$o. In cases where sprint==2, this helps against catching stuff life sprint==20 in the filter.
rc.bulk=0 is an override of the setting
bulk which decides how many changes at the same time is too many. Regardless of the value of the
confirmation setting. Here I set it to infinity, and this way I don’t get one question for each sprint.
Also Setting Up Multiple Project Areas with Taskwarrior – Steve Dondley is quite interesting – I’ll do something similar for work and home, except that I’ll use the existing
tw aliases instead switching it like he does. But I might consider something like this so that
t at work gives me the work tasks and my home tasks at home.
cp copy to target directory by overwriting the contents
-T, --no-target-directory treats target as a normal file, not a directory.
-v is also quite handy.
Lastly, I’m not sure how does
taskwarrior work. When I try to delete
~/.task it gets recreated with the standard files, but empty ones, as if it was a clean taskwarrior install. I don’t see any
task-like processes running. I’m not sure how is this possible.

Super Guide to the split-window tmux Subcommand (and Beyond) – Steve Dondley looks awesome. In general I’d like to spend 2020 by learning to use existing tools better - the taskwarrior
.is attribute is something I had to look for.
