      The time tracking features, when enabled, still do not really surface in the user interface. You can't search or filter on the fiend, and when you view open issues, whether in the web ui or even in XML or Excel output, the time estimate or time spent do not appear, and, more importantly, there is no way to see a summary of time remaining for a project or for a set of issues.

      I'm about to start writing my own SQL queries to summarize (timeestimated-timespent) on a set of issues to get an idea of the backlog and time remaining on a particular project (good XP ideas), but this should be part of the product...it looks like the time tracking field was added as an afterthought and hasn't really made its way into the product.
