A good indication that I’m not thrilled about doing something is when I start thinking of ways to automate it. Sure I could spend 5 minutes doing the task manually — look at a Jira board, count the story-points of each ticket, and write the sum in a spreadsheet — but that would be boring! What would be much more interesting is spending a couple of hours writing a script to do this, complete with calls to the Jira API, a Sqlite3 database, maybe some graph drawing routines…
Ok, settle down. Just do it manually for now. Plenty of time to automate it later.
Then again, it would be nice if that story-point sum was calculated automatically… 🤔
