That's a different tool, not for a sheets that would for example
support a matrix structure (subdir x porting_aspect).
I am using it just for taking notes about small and large tasks and
sure I would encourage you to use it this way. [1]
This means: I am no longer using these tables [
https://community.kde.org/Calligra/Schedules/Feature_Plan ] and will
migrate away from them one day.

[1] And even for tasks, as someone accustomed with JIRA, oh! The tool
has potential to be convenient in next 12 months.
It has no solid option for full r-o public access and lacks support
for development teams - you are lost in a context-less list of all KDE
devs and all projects all the time.
