Eclipse Mylyn Integration

Mylyn is the task and application lifecycle management (ALM) framework for Eclipse. Mylyn allows developers to connect to a ]project-open[ server and to review, update and create tasks.

The ]project-open[ team and Markus Knittig  have developed a Mylyn "connector" that uses the ]project-open[ REST interface in order to communicate with a ]po[ server.
