Overview
This project is an attempt to provide a solution to the time-management and progress-tracking issues that arise when an individual is working on a number of different projects.

Specifically, this project intends to provide a calendar, list of projects, a visual depiction of due dates and times worked, a brief overview of approaching due dates, and a reminder of projects that are falling behind.

Use Cases
(To) Visually understand upcoming dates and previous work: A user loads the main application screen (by either opening the application, or selecting Home from the application's menu). A 9x7 grid displays a calendar which shows 4 weeks into the past, the current week, and 4 weeks into the future. The cells in the calendar grid contain horizontal boxes which represent due dates, logged work, or scheduled dates. The different classes of boxes will each have a color associated with it (For example, all due dates are red). The user uses the visual display of colors to infer an overview of approaching due dates and events.

(To) Log time spent working on a project: A user loads the main application screen (by either opening the application, or selecting Home from the application's menu). A 9x7 grid displays a calendar which shows 4 weeks into the past, the current week, and 4 weeks into the future. The user mouses over a day, a box hovers by the mouse over each day. The users clicks the link marked ("Log event") which only appears for past-current days.
The a box pops up allowing the user to select an existing project, or create a new project. The user is able to log time worked on, time spent working (or end time), and leave notes about what was done. The user fills in the information and submits.

(To) Add a due date: A user loads the main application screen (by either opening the application, or selecting Home from the application's menu). A 9x7 grid displays a calendar which shows 4 weeks into the past, the current week, and 4 weeks into the future. The user mouses over a day, a box hovers by the mouse over each day. The users clicks the link marked ("Add date") which only appears for future days.
The a box pops up allowing the user to select an existing project, or create a new project. The user is able to record due time, description of type of deadline, and leave notes about the due date. The user fills in the information and submits.

make it grab data from Git or SVN or some other source control.

Good idea.

I was also looking to export dates and import dates in either a uniform format, or a number of popular formats, to allow users to use this tool in conjunction with other scheduling applications.

Also an idea being tossed around is video/audio logging of projects. The idea being that when a project is run from initial idea to completion with this tool, a record of the development process is produced.
