Trac is strong in basic, individual and small-team task management but lacks features for heavy-duty project management a la Microsoft Project, Project Manager Workbench, etc. This page discusses those missing features and how they can best be realized.

As discussed in two threads on the Trac Users mailing list, a fundamental requirement for project management is a Gantt chart.

Trac has three Gantt chart plugins:

FlashGantt seems complex and stale.

GanttChart is a very simple Gantt chart implemented in a formatted text region. It is manually edited, not data-driven.

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.
