Issue with Plans - Cannot call method 'getTime' of null

 After a colleague of mine did some whacking at the project/process configuration XML merging Scrum stuff with Formal Project Management stuff.  I'm getting a strange error on my plans.  Any ideas what might be causing this?  Is this some issue with Time Spent vs. Time Remaining?

Hi Carson,

I have not seen the error with 'getTime' before, but a similar error which was caused by some invalid plan mode in the project's process configuration. The easiest way to debug this is to compare the template before and after the change and see what the changes are and what could possibly cause the 'getTime' error. In the process configuration source tab in the Eclipse client, right click and select 'Show History'. It will list all the history revisions in the History window. You can select 2 revisions and compare them. Hope this would help narrowing down to what causes the error above.
