I'm using project pier to do project management for an animated film. I'd like to take Task List and Tasks, and create a plugin that almost duplicates its their functionality but customize it for shots. The idea would be instead of creating a Task List with individual tasks assigned to users you'd create a Shot, and there would be pipeline steps (layout, animation, etc.) assigned to users.
So I took a look at the recommendations for creating a plugin that said to basically duplicate an existing plugins hierarchy and change it to do what you wanted it to do. It makes most sense to duplicate the Task List and change its function...but thats not a plug in. Any suggestions?
