Currently Planner is written 100% in C but we will most likely start
using C#/Mono in the future (post-1.0) for certain new parts.

This is great, especially if you are also interested in helping out on
the implementation of such ideas. We currently have a lot of more ideas
than man hours so this is great.

Of course! :)

For the record we are not trying to make a copy of MS Project. The
reason it's pretty similar to MS Project is more because we started
making it similar to Evolution (which used Outlook as ui model) than the
fact MS Project looks the same way.

If you have ideas and understandings about thing that can be done in a
better way, please send messages to the list and add bugs in bugzilla.
Knowledge about user experiances with MS Project is something that
neither me or Richard has.
