How to mark tasks and items as completed

A few people have asked how to mark tasks and backlog items as completed in Banana Scrum. The rule is extremely simple:

1) A task is marked as completed (checked off and displayed in gray) when the number of hours remaining falls to zero.

2) A backlog item is marked as completed when there is at least one task for it, and all the tasks are completed.

We decided not to implement a dedicated "completed" button, as we believe that tasks should cover all there is to complete the user story (and you can always add more tasks if needed) and obviously it wouldn't make sense to have completed items with unfinished tasks remaining.
