you're not alone.  there's a reason why the unix philosophy of one
tool doing one job really works well with free software - it's a built
in todo list.  i frequently do documentation on my projects expressly
for the purpose of taking stock of where i am and where i need to go.
and in terms of managing other people it's a requirement if i'm to expect
any help in getting stuff done.

think of what baywatch does for recruiting lifeguards...  :)

particularly on large projects it is a good idea to list out tasks that
need doing as a way of gaining entry into the code.
