Feature request. Within a project, you can select different types of tasks, and if those types of tasks aren't available, grab whatever other tasks available to do from that Project.

But within BOINC manager, each parent Project gets a percentage. I want to flog a particular project 100% which takes up basically all resources on that PC. I do not want to run an additional project concurrently, which would affect my preferred project computations. But, if my preferred project runs dry of tasks, I want other projects to kick in to use my computer resources.

Rather than percentages, it would be preferable to have three priorities of projects, 1, 2, and 3. If priority 1's are available, then run only 1's. If 1's aren't available, then run 2's. If 1's and 2's aren't available, then run 3's. Percentages can remain, and are scaled to whatever is available for the given priority.

Thanks for considering.

git-hub is a better place to ask for feature requests as many of the developers don't visit these boards on a regular basis.
