An "aunt" task is a peer of the parent of the task. I'm not actually sure where that terminology originated; presumably, it was coined by one of the outlining apps that predated OmniOutliner.

I believe the feminine pronouns were chosen because it was historically easier to reliably determine inheritance/lineage through that side of the family tree.
