[HOT] Ebola Outbreak Activation

Sorry if there was a misunderstanding.

Previously, there was no real way to list the projects associated to
"an activation".

For example, the following link didn't really list the jobs for the
"Ebola" related activation.

What it actually did is searching for jobs with "ebola" in their name
and/or description (even in the middle of words) and shows only the
"featured" ones.
If for any reason "ebola" was contained in a word (for example:
"aktiebolag" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aktiebolag) in the
description, the corresponding job would also be listed.

So, Mikel is right, if one wants a similar result, the following link works:

The only difference is that it doesn't only show the high priority
projects. However, high priority projects will appear on top.

About grouping projects "by activation", though it's indeed a
must-have feature, it's not under development. Correct me if I'm wrong
but it has never been planned.

I fully understand Pierre's frustrations but adding new features
fatally may break existing one. I've been doing my best to break as
less features as possible, and to get a Tasking Manager more powerful
than it was before.
