Your tool recommendations: research & design documentation

Having recently moved back into a research and design management role, I'd like to ask the group for recommendations on how to easily manage design research and design documentation. 

To my knowledge there is no "one tool to rule them all." In the past I've typically cobbled together solutions from piece parts; e.g., Basecamp, Jira/Confluence, Lighthouse, etc. for requirements and design documentation; Pivotal Tracker or Jira for work item and issue tracking.

Usability & users with mental health issues and disorders

I'm in the definition phase of a site redesign for a mental health
and addiction association and rehab center. Besides following the W3C
standards in accessibility are there any guidelines or best practices
I should consider for users that suffer from more emotionally charged
or cognitive issues than physical limitations. Maybe there are
considerations for colour, layout, presentation of content etc.

ADMIN: filtering certain attachment types

Hi everyone,

With the great help of Michael Bartlett I've configured both the Discuss@
and Workgroup@ lists so that only a specific type of attachments can get
through. If an attachment doesn't match a specific mime type it will not be
allowed onto the list.

image, office apps, pdf, flash are still allowed through.

PIF, ZIP, and EXE are NOT allowed through (e.g.)

For the most part people shouldn't be sending attachments at all through
this list of any type ... but there might be cases where it is necessary and
I don't want to eliminate it at all.

task hierarchy in web 2/RIA apps

can you all suggest examples showing how designers used distinct controls
for each level in a hierarchy of tasks in web 2/ajax?

for example:
a level 3 task is the highest and can contain several level 2 tasks.
