This VSTS Ranger project is not one of the new additions, but instead has been maturing for the past two years. It started as a connector for “Microsoft® Office Project Server 2007 and Microsoft Visual Studio® 2005 Team Foundation Server (TFS)” and has been updated in March 2008 to target Team Foundation Server 2008.
Although I have not seen a huge adoption of Project Server 2007 in my home country and especially in the small-medium software development company environment, this project delivers invaluable glue to bring the project management and the software application lifecycle management stories together.
The Project Server 2007 VSTS Connector team team has even created a discussion alias which you can use for collaboration. Check the Codeplex site for details.

- Are you using Project Server 2007? If yes, what are your experiences and is there value in integrating Project Server with Team Foundation Server?
