Start of a new venture
I was working with a company on setting up a project management system - the selected tool was dotProject. dotProject is an open source PM tool, one of the few complete one's out there - it has a wide (from what I can tell) user base - but compared to some of the commercial software (SmartSheet, QuickBase, etc.) - it really doesn't compare...but it's free and has potential. So, in talking with the owner of the company - a very pro-open source person (morals do count) - I decided to take a shot at 'cleaning up' dotProject.......above is my first pass at items I would like to accomplish.....
Hoping to provide progress reports over the next month or so...and potentially have it re-released (open source of course) in 6-8 weeks. This is the first open source venture I'm the primary developer on (getting out the ole' PHP reference book now). Should be interesting. Code Name: ITProjectGuide (creative - right?)
