Asking for a friend ;)
My other repo is a scratch pad of sorts. Various scripts and tests, at various stages. This is for things like testing sorts, weird complicated manipulations to strings etc. I some need to run some script somewhere else to check somet so I can just clone scratch repo somewhere remotely and run things there. Mostly though it's more of a let me take all my objects from debug mode and use those values with a code snippet I want to alter without having to run large files to reproduce those object values.
Third repo is my story repo. It holds all the stories I work on, with my notes. We use Jira so it's story is - a short description. Inside I write my thoughts, things I need to consider, things I don't want to forget. Lately I have been experimenting with having a day.md and I just keep appending on the top new days, I don't k ow if I like it more.
All three repos are public within the company. I actually have used the story repo for presentations within my team etc. I find that it helps me keep me accountable.
The fourth repo is not pushed anywhere. Just local for my personal todos, but I rarely use it. Instead I write my personal stuff on paper. It helps separate personal from work todos just by using a different medium.
On my personal projects I use clubhouse.io, it’s really low friction project management system to setup and use. I write detailed notes in each task on what is broken or needs to change and why, and when I go weeks without being able to touch the code it gives me a great snapshot of its state to get me back up to speed. Plus when I add a contributor it should help them get started far easier.
Most notes are temporary until I can absorb enough to have a good shot at finding out what it states with 15-30 minutes investigation tops. Having lots of saved notes wouldn't help me if I couldn't find what I'm thinking of quickly.
