Well, I couldn't use it, without significant tweaking.

It feels as if the thing doesn't have a maintainer and slowly decomposes.

That is true, yes.

The question is.. the only documentation for ox-taskjuggler that exists
in Worg, seems to only cover the surface aspects of export -- none of
the existing documentation touches on the multitude of details that the
existing code does involve itself with.

The point I'm trying to make, is that producing some documentation that
would cover the details (that one actually expects to be covered, coming
from the TaskJuggler background) seems like a separate task.

That is, not in scope of my little "tweak it to work for myself" series..

I do, indeed -- and they are undocumented in a matter that is similar to
the 80% of pre-existing properties.

Oh, indeed -- missed that!

What should I do about it?

Understood, will rename, then.
