... but what is JIRA?

JIRA is an bug/issue tracking project management software that the  
Fluid team uses to keep track of
- the tasks to be done/ being done
- who's doing them
- what the priorities are.

We are setting up "filters" in JIRA to organize our design activities  
according the diagram on the wiki page below.

The JIRA tasks in the first design iteration (named Engage Design  
Iteration 01) are listed here:
As you can see, most of the tasks are categorized into "Research"  
under Components, since we are in the initial research phase of the  
project. Each task summary starts with the sub-category (e.g.  
Benchmarking:, Survey:, etc.) so that the tasks can be sorted by  

Hope this is giving you a more clear picture.
Let me know if you have any questions or ideas!
