As a GNOMEy guy, I am pretty disgusted at the lack of uptake on Planner
(nee MrProject) since it was "liberated" by Imendio.  No collaborative
features, no net-awareness, etc.  Maybe I'm just blind to whatever
they've done with it, but I haven't seen it.  I have no idea what sort
of collaborative web-based tools are out there for this stuff, but I'm
sure the TJ work John's doing will give us some sort of webby,
multiplayer interface to Do Useful Stuff.
