Great article!

Another way to address TODO comments is by incorporating a tool into your code review process that allows the team to prioritize and organize TODO comments. imdone does this by laying them out in a kanban board.

Neat, thanks for sharing that! I have also seen various static analysis tools that can actually fail a continuous integration process if you include TODO comments.

Unfortunately, the real world happens and TODO comments aren't bad. That's why I like suggestions like JIRA and (now) imdone because it helps create that accountability and making sure they aren't lost forever.
