Hi John and all, good catch - thanks for raising this!

I flagged with the project originator (CartONG) and sent them a link to
this thread - they have already responded and are going to check out the
situation now.

There is indeed compulsory onboarding / training for all groups wishing to
manage projects in the tasking manager... But, in this case, CartONG have
been building and managing good quality projects for 5+ years, so I don't
think it's down to lack of experience or care.
