Yeah I think that's definitely worth looking into!
My main motivation behind having a board is to have a quick overview of
what's going on. One part of it is the board itself, and the other part is
that we could only see the content that's "active" without deleting things
from Wordpress — maybe articles that take time to write, etc. (or maybe we
should delete more things?) And comments, so we remember what we talked
about in the past regarding each article.
So if there are better ways to do this than the Taiga board, I'm definitely
up to try it!

for WP. No problem using Taiga for this, but I wonder if the plugin is
worth investigating if it offers some way to conveniently link to
article content (drafts, etc.).
