 I'll clarify something here . My suggestion does not consist in including
 widgets in a single for developers, team leaders, ... any other role , in
 order to satisfy any possible expectations . No. My suggestion is to have
 a single ''URL'' to access dashboard and make it look like a home page.
 Nonetheless view should be able to adapt according to user decisions on
 what's important for him regarding products and associated resources.

 as long as they'll be accessible at a single URL this doesn't conflict
 with my previous suggestion because ...

 ... if the infrastructure for custom dashboard contents is somewhere then
 we can give the option (admin and|or preferences panel) for users to
 select between a set of built-in dashboards provided by the project and
 designed for particular use cases . That'd be fine in first place . Maybe
 later a separate plugin might extend these capabilities in order to let
 them design all the details at will, select widgets one-by-one, etc ...
 Nonetheless in any case we'll need customized dashboards and a mechanism
 to select what are the contents of interest for a particular user .

 You can see it this way too . It'll be possible to have multiple
 dashboards delivered by the project or plugins e.g. /dashboard/ticket ,
 /dashboard/team , /dashboard/vcs , ... but users will be able to see them
 listed in a form (admin or preferences panel) and select the one they'll
 see by default on accessing /dashboard path .

 > I think it would be better to shelve this discussion until a point at
 which we are ready to consider further generalisation of the dashboard. It
 is not that it is completely undesirable but there are more important
 things to get on with.

 We shall keep this ticket unscheduled until it will be the right time to
 start working on it .
