If the processes use the people activity, no.  If the processes call
WS-HumantTask services directly, then probably yes.

The Tempo project is working towards a BPEL4People-compliant implementation.


and most of the work to implement WS-HumanTask is being done in this branch,


however integration with Apache Ode (i.e., implement the "people activity")
has not yet started.
