What to do with planning tasks that need to move to next iteration?

Hi Daphne,

Good question. One of the benefits of tracking work that wasn't  
completed is, as you say, to help with the velocity calculation.

However, now that we have the spreadsheet containing a summary of all  
our estimated tasks, it is indeed safe to go ahead and just change the  
iteration tag for a task that you never started. No need to clone  
tasks across iterations.
