Your system seems pretty good. I tend not to put a great deal of detail on programming tasks into OF. I think of small-scale programming as a bit like discovery writing—I don't know what I don't know until I set out to write the code. Given that, planning detailed steps isn't very productive for me. I put fine-grained actions into the code as comments, preceded by one of TODO, FIXME, or CONSIDER. If I'm going to leave a coding project for awhile, I might capture some next actions in OF that point me at the important such comments.

For larger programs, some sort of bug/feature tracker is a must. I haven't worked on a larger project in a couple of years—my paycheck comes from teaching now—so can't offer advice on integrating a bug tracker with OF. Others on the forums have looked into that I know.
