i've started development of the node relations module, i called it nodefamily module. As the module might be useful not only for profile nodes, I've written it generally, so that it may be used without nodeprofiles at all.
i started with the development of the usernode module, which cares for creating/deleting a node, whenever users are added/deleted - so other modules can rely on that a node exists for each user. it already does its job, however the views integration is still missing.
As i noted in the proposal I need a node relationship, which offers views integration. The views integration I 've in mind is that it's not only possible to display a link to a related node in a view, like it is with CCK node relations, instead it should be possible to list concrete data (e.g. CCK fields) of the related node.
I noted that I've not published a project schedule yet, so here it is:
