I'm glad you like it. Spread the word!

Yes, this was a bug introduced by a change I did to automatically set
the project lead as a manager on that project. This fix will be included
on Eventum 1.5.3, hopefully to be released Wednesday.

No, you don't need to keep that project.

Right, this is a known shortcomming in Eventum. However, this feature is
really not simple to implement. We have this on our TODO list but on a
low priority, though.

I could translate it all to pt_BR as well, but the underlying problem is
that Eventum is just not setup yet to handle i18n. We have that
scheduled for Eventum 2.0, whenever that happens ;)
