To be fair, the OP (the attribution is missing, so I'm not sure who
you're responding to) was talking about a "time report and a summary of
[their] work", which is more than just the todo list.

Yeah, but that's trivial, isn't it? I mean, I could (in fact, sometimes
do) keep an Org file in a project's directory with a todo list in it and
if I want to see the project's todo list, I just open that Org file.

Actually using the todo list effectively will require investing some
time in learing the mode itself, regardless of whether I use todo-mode
or org-mode.
