I have a long plane flight coming up next week (Sunday), so if nobody
else sings out, I will try to have a look at this one then. Every time I
make a project plan with Planner I want to use something other than
finish-to-start somewhere.

Along similar lines: I seem to regularly need to edit something via the
tasks menu and it would be nice that when I flip back to the Gantt view
if the highlighted item was the one I have highlighted in the Tasks
view. To me this seems logical -- highlighting the same data element in
both views. Do other people have strong feelings?

I am almost volunteering to look at this (again because it fixes a
problem I care about), but I don't want to spend time if it has some
clear drawback and is unlikely to be accepted.

Are there any standards in this area that people know about? What I am
asking is whether the existing spreadsheet export stylesheet just uses a
style that looks reasonable, or are we emulating something that exists
in Microsoft Project or another tool?

"Resource utilisation" sounds nearly as bad, but that is what I kept
thinking of it as when this was originally being worked on. "Resource
usage", maybe? "Resource scheduling"?
