Add a comment function to arcanist
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

At the moment, we have to change the status from arcanist, and leava a comment about this. So normaly you use the console, to write code, start tracking with phrequent, commit, accept or close the revision, but you have to switch to the WebUI to leave a comment at the task, so it would be better, if we can:

  • Change the priority
  • Leave a comment
  • Reassign a task, or claim him

with arcanist, so we don't have to switch.

Why do you feel it's better? My concern here is it both takes longer and is more error prone to use a CLI interface with an application like Maniphest. Is there a core problem you feel this solves outside of just staying in the console?

I think it is better, if we have a change to do this (at least add a comment) at the console, so you can:

  1. Checkout what you have to do, do finish a task
  2. Checkout git or other at the console, switch to branch
  3. Run arc start to track time
  4. If you make a break you can run arc stop and post your progress, before you go away, so you don't have to (re)open web again, console is already open
