someone will probably tell you to look at casetracker.module, too.   
not sure if it handles due dates, etc, or what.  personally, i'd  
rather see your efforts in the project module, but that's my own  
bias. ;)

patches to project must be self-contained and only address 1 thing at  
a time.  please don't roll a 400 line patch that changes 17 things  
and expect me to review/commit it. ;)  every new feature should be  
its own issue in the issue queue, and it's own patch.  if you go that  
route, you're *much* more likely to see your code get into the  
official release.  also, the issue queue for project is full of  
feature requests that need patches.  feel free to take a look at  
those and see if you can get any of them working.

perhaps we should talk off-line if you want a guided tour of the  
inner workings of the project.module's code (what little of it i  
understand it this point, that is!). ;)  or, if i'm in #drupal on  
IRC, feel free to ask me there.

thanks for your interest!  i'm looking forward to seeing your  
contributions to the project module...
