USAGE: opensched [-d] [-v] [-h] file1 [file2 file3 ...]
It looks like file1 is not optional, though the man page implies that
it's optional. The man page shows:
opensched [-d] [-v] [-h] [file...]
The opensched program accepts a project description file, assigns tasks
to resources, schedules tasks to time periods, and prints various
The user creates a project description file, which describes what has
to be done, who can do it, etc.
The user runs the opensched program (perhaps using a Makefile). The
program will schedule any tasks that have not been assigned to people
and time periods by the user.
Looking at the source code in main.cc, if the user doesn't specify a
filename, opensched tries to open a file called "workplan.sched", but
if the user does specify filename(s), it loads it/them. In the man
page, after "The user creates a project description file, which

Version 0.4.4 was released in November 2003, and upstream now has
version opensched-xml.0.2 dated October 2006 at
http://sourceforge.net/projects/opensched/ - it might be better to
package that rather than trying to fix the present version in Debian.
However, upstream notes that "A new version of the XML adventure has
been released: opensched-xml.0.2. Now, the monthly_* commands are
replaced by XSL transformations. But take care this version is
EXPERIMENTAL. Lot of work should be done before a stable release. For
example, the XML output will probably be revisited."
