“A chicken and a pig are together when the chicken says, "Let's start a restaurant!" The pig thinks it over and says, "What would we call this restaurant?"
The chicken says, "Ham n' Eggs!"
The pig says, "No thanks, I'd be committed, but you'd only be involved!"

Simple product backlog
There are a lot of complex tools to manage product backlog, and do a lot more. You probably know Greenhopper for JIRA, or IcedScrum just to mention two of them.
These tools are good, but a bit heavy weighted if you are looking for a simple possibility to manage your product backlog for a small or middle sized project.
For my purposes, I've made a simple excel sheet (or better say a Libre calc sheet), that I'd like to share with you.
It has some additional features like:
Progress estimation (sprint estimation) based on recorder or assumed velocity
Story burn-down chart
I'm really interested on any feedback or on suggestions for improvement. I do upload an excel version too, but I can't test it, so if you gonna be sure, just use the ods file.
