Is it possible to effectively use org-mode as a front end to github issues and milestones (with two way sync)?
There is a project to allow such functionality, called
org-sync. (Or rather,
org-sync has a GitHub backend.) You can find it here.
Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be actively maintained.
The main problem I have noticed is that it doesn't support syncing comments on the issues. As for milestones, it does attach an item to
PROPERTIES that tells you which one an issue belongs to, but it doesn't look like you can edit milestones directly.
M-x package-install RET org-sync RET
Add to initialization (.emacs or .emacs.d/init.el)
(mapc 'load '("org-sync" "org-sync-bb" "org-sync-github" "org-sync-redmine"))
Use: In new org-mode-buffer do
(setq org-sync-github-auth '("ostesting" . "thisisostesting42"))
To add issue, create subheading
