Description Dean Povey 2004-02-25 10:30:18 UTC
"This is a port of Taskjuggler, a project management tool for Linux and UNIX
system-based operating systems. Instead of clicking yourself painfully through
hundreds of dialog boxes you specify your Taskjuggler project in a simple text
format. You simply list all your tasks and their dependencies. The information
is sent through Taskjuggler and you will get all sorts of reports in HTML or
XML format.

This port currently builds and tests fine on my system. Only caveats are

1. Original code used perl module PostScript::Simple 0.04 which is

which probably doesn't follow the FreeBSD way of doing things, but is difficult
to easily work around (okay it isn't that hard, but I was too lazy to do the

Last but not least the port has exactly one option, whether to build the
KDE ktjview program which requires KDE3.
