What happens if I edit in the PMI, then my colleague edits the XML?
Then you will have two separate copies.The PMI stores the plan information in a database. Drupal provides some revision control that can be leveraged here.

When I did the import of the existing information, I pulled in project plans where I could find them. It was a one-way process.

You must choose to either continue to run with an XML file, or you can use the form elements in the PMI. There is no plan to attempt to coordinate these.
How do I make that choice?
Do you like editing XML and doing revision control in Git, or do you prefer to use a web form?

How is the choice enforced?
It's not. I just need to see a plan either in the required XML format, or in the database. In the end, it's just a URL either way.

If there are two separate copies which is seen by the user?
No. If you provide an XML file, then we'll render it the old-fashioned way from a link that we'll put on the review record. Maybe I should include an optional field on the release record to hold the link.

If you use the PMI, it'll show up there.

If I choose XML, how is the PMI refreshed?
It's not.
