Demo app: project management with dexterity content types.

Latest Version: 2.0.0


This add-on demonstrates how to create a project management application in Plone with four Dexterity content types: Client, Project, Iteration, and Task. It also includes a tool to automate the creation of iterations, and a custom workflow for the Client, Project and Iteration types that contains active/inactive states.
