They are all part of a master schedule which John and others including
me consult for information.  The source is published on John'd area each release.  This allows people to use the
identical tools and produce meaningful diffs with comments if they
feel that's useful.

We always appreciate input and suggestions to make the schedule tasks
and dates work better.  If anyone wants to produce something in the
tool set, they're encouraged to use the source and tools (taskjuggler)
to do so.  It's well-nigh impossible to relegate schedule data from
completely different tools.

I suspect the talk next week will help a lot in this regard. I'd also
recommend that people on the team think about how we could use the
resulting schedule in regular meetings to stay on top of approaching
