I have never gotten a currently tagged version of project module to  
run with a current version of Drupal out of the box. Even using a CVS  
version meant lots of (nasty) bugs...I suspect this is because  
Drupal.org (along with project.module) always runs close to head and  
project.module maintainers hadn't been diligent about tagging/ 
branching. With all the recent work by nedjo, it's shaping up nicely  
-- thanks (and to the man behind the curtain, Kieran, for sponsoring  

An "open source community" install profile/recipe *would* be great.
