I've been in the process over the past few months (very sporadically, I might add) of writing a project planning tool. It still doesn't do much yet, but it's at the stage now where it will produce a simple functional Gantt chart (with an NSDate based model and view). (There are also some ugly drawing glitches).

I'm initially targeting Linux (using GNUstep), but ultimately, I aim to maintain versions for Windows and Mac as well.

You can download the source from http://bitbucket.org/leynos/gantt.app

Anyway, I'm kind of looking for some input as to where I should take this application. I have some ideas, but I'm not really sure which to give priority.

Firstly, I guess, would such a tool be of use to anyone?

I want to create something that makes time allocation easy and something people can do without thinking about too much.

If you don't use a project management tool for planning your projects at present, what is it about current PM tools that you find gets in the way or makes them unsuitable?

Stuff I hope to include would be resources (with address book integration), deadlines, dependencies, estimates and actuals, burndowns, kanban, sprints (however those might be represented),
weighting and chronological notes.

I'd also like to eventually include client/server based collaboration and plugin based integration with various issue tracking systems. This all sounds a bit ambitious just now, but you've got to start somewhere.

Anyway, looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this.
