* Task Data Refactoring
+
==Repository Task Data==
** Currently not nomalized
+
*** repository configuration options stored in same file
+
*** Configuration data is being updated upon load anyway
+
** Presentation information such as hidden/readonly status fields being persisted  (put with configuration?)
+
** Operations being included
+
**Task Data Externalization
+
*** Switch to XML
+
*** Possibly use IMemento
+
*** Separate files vs. one BIG file
+
*** Consider zipping all the individual xml files together into one zip file (similar to Open Office file format ODF)
+
 
+
* Lazy loading
+
** currently loaded at tasklist load time
+
** Could just have a flag indicating the existence of an offline file rather than load the data
+
** What does this break?
+
 
+
*Repository Configuration
+
** (option 1) Leave as responsibility of connector assuming a contract:
+
***Provide IMemento upon startup as an option?
+
***Remote configuration gathered periodically
+
***Always available (even if repository is deleted, configuration sticks)
+
***Given a configuration folder within .mylar to persist data (not ideal)
+
***Task data combined with configuration upon presentation rather than persistence
+
** (option 2) XML externalization
+
***Available options per id (ie. taskdata.priority --> P1, P2, P3...)
+
***Available options given a specific product selection <Attribute id="taskdata.components"><Value>Bugzilla</Value><Value>Core</Value>
+
***Hidden/readonly status for attributes?
+
 
+
