It seems to me the project overview page would be more valuable if it had a list of all the messages in a project as well as all the task lists (Similar to the upcoming milestones box).
This would reduce the total number of clicks required to get somewhere and provide a full birds-eye-view of a project.
When I go to a project overview, I want to see everything that is associated with that project. And this feature would provide a bit more structure than the "Recent Activities" section (which I'm not suggesting be removed).
I've tried to get this to work myself but haven't had any luck.
