Hi Mary-Anne,

Thanks for the comments.

That's kind of what I'm wondering.  On the one hand, everybody I know
does something that looks like project management - who doesn't have a
to-do list, or a checklist or two sitting around; and an awful lot of us
work in groups that have action item lists.  But do people think of that
as project management?
Depending upon just what sort
of project management you want to do,
you might check out
before you build another one.

(Jira is free for Open Source projects.)

If you decide to build another one,
you should likely have an answer to how or whether
your solution does what these solutions already do.

Actually, my motivation stems from being really unhappy with centralized solutions. I'm basically going the other way:

- everyone has their own copy of an action item list and supporting documents
- updates are replicated via a peer-to-peer, asynchronous protocol

Essentially, the look and feel of sharing a Google Doc, Google Spreadsheet, or Wiki Page; but where everybody has a local copy, can work offline, make private annotations, and so forth.

For a lot of people, a Google Spreadsheet, or one of the new web-based checklist sharing packages is just fine. This is for those of us who:
- like our own copies of things, and/or,
- need to work disconnected a lot of the time (on airplanes, responding to disasters, and so forth)



In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
In practice, there is.   .... Yogi Berra
