Time tracking is a simple device that lets you start and stop a 'clock' whenever you are working on a task and then have the elapsed time added to the 'Time Spent' attribute.
Continue time-tracking a task even when
Tracking a new task should stop tracking of tasks in all other open tasklists
This option ensures that there is only ever one task being tracked at any one time.
Log tracked time
For each start/stop sequence this option saves information about the sequence to a .csv file, the idea being that at a later date (weekly or monthly) you can load this into Excel (or Open Office) and generate a report from each entry.
Allow time tracking on parent tasks
By default, a parent task's time spent on is simply the accumulated time spent of all its subtasks. As a result (by default) the attribute field of a parent task is disabled and time tracking is disabled. This option allows time tracking on parent tasks and also (as a side effect) allows manual times to be added to parent tasks.
One day equals 'x' hours

Likewise, this allows you to specify the length of the working week.
The following days represent the weekend
The checked days are not included when calculating dates when the units are 'Weekdays'.
