Timesheet for SharePoint 2010 CodePlex project

Overview:  I have a lot of people looking for a timesheet solution for SharePoint 2010 as I have 4 posts on this blog about timesheets for SharePoint.  I get some great pointers and requests so I think it is time to make this a codeplex project.
Objective: To make a plug-in for SharePoint that will allow users to fill in timesheets.  I recon a sandbox solution is a good idea with SharePoint Online on the horizon in the next few months.  I want to provide 2 storage providers for the data: SQL Server and AZURE.
Wanted: As a starting poing I am going to add my code onto CodePlex in the next week and hopefully some folks want to build this as a community project.  If you are interested in helping out please drop me a line.  I need C# coders & front-end devs (someone to be in charge of the UI would be great), testers, documenters, ideas.  So if you want to join the project you can twitter me at @paulbeck1 and I'll add you to the codeplex project pre-launch.
Part 1 - Design & data storage
Part 2 - Building the UI
Part 3 - Installation Steps
Part 4 - Final Part

Hello Paul,

First of all, I have to say this is a great work.

Second, I have a question for you, this timesheet is based on the Sharepoint List of users (sync with an AD) or is based on SQL table of users?

If is using a SQL Table, how this can be change to uses the Sharepoint List?

Thank You.

All data is stored in SQL however the users of the system are based off their SharEPoint credentials so in classic authentication on SP their AD account. But it can be off there claims or any login.
