    2727 * Assigned resource - The individual who will work  on this task. 
    2828 * % Effort - The amount of the resource's time that will be spent on this task.  If the resource is working on a 2-day task 50% of the time, we expect it to take 4 days. 
    29  * % Complete - How much of the task has been done already. 
    30  * Dependencies - How other tasks affect when this task can be started or finished.

    6060 [http://willbarton.com/code/tracgantt/ TracGantt]:: has potential but has some funky fields (e.g., Due to Assign) that don't seem to be appropriate to what we want to do with a Gantt chart.

    62 There is a [http://www.viewpath.net/Website/ganttcharts/googlegadget.aspx Google Gadget Gantt chart] which might be leveraged for the visualizations once the data is made available (e.g. using [http:https://opensvn.csie.org/traccgi/swlcu/wiki/En/Devel/TracGViz/ TracGViz plugin}}}). That widget is developped and maintained by a company (i.e. [http://www.viewpath.net/ ViewPath]). Besides users need access to the internet and their projects environments '''have to''' be available too so that the iGoogle container be able to retrieve the data to display in the chart. All this means that local deployments (intranets, ...) are not possible.

    161159TimingAndEstimationPlugin and TracHoursPlugin add estimated and actual hours fields to tickets.  There is some disagreement about whether the estimate is the remaining time (so total estimated time is actual + estimate) or total time (so remaining time is estimate - actual).  A Gantt chart typically wants estimate and percent complete.  It is possible to extract this from either recording convention and we should likely allow either convention via a configurable interface.
