Track uses of TODO tags


    The "Track uses of TODO tags" rule in SQL Server code checks for the presence of TODO tags in the code. This rule is used to identify sections of code that require additional work or need to be revisited in the future. The rule will flag any code that contains the words "TODO" or "FIXME" so that developers can easily identify sections of code that need additional attention. This rule can help ensure that code is written in a maintainable way and that any incomplete or potentially problematic code is addressed in a timely manner.
