class TaskJuggler::StatusSheetSender

The StatusSheetSender class generates status sheet templates for the current week and sends them out to the managers. For this to work, the resources must provide the ‘Email’ custom attribute with their email address. The actual project data is accessed via tj3client on a tj3 server process.
