That's ok. I also didn't consider that these can be modified by users, which would make it
unfeasible anyway.

given its own due date through a plugin.)

lists should be allowed to overlap. If we are expecting users to discuss the list of tickets
displayed with reference to a dashboard view, it might be expected that certain lists would
be identical for the viewers. On the other hand, a ticket listed twice on a page seems a bit
silly so it would probably be helpful to instead provide the means for the user to see the
dashboard style views of a different user - probably with redacted parts for where there is
information that the viewing user does not have the relevant permissions to view.

I'm happy for them to overlap. It's unlikely that they will significantly anyway in a common
setup considering the number of users it would have and assuming some division of the work.

The discussion aspect is a good point I hadn't considered yet. When your priorities and the
overall priorities overlap significantly that also provides helpful feedback which may trigger
helpful conversations.
