Hey, I was looking for the same thing so I created my own version of a PERT/Network/Graph diagram if anyone is still looking for similar solution, code below image.

PlantUML

@startuml PERT
left to right direction
' Horizontal lines: -->, <--, <-->
' Vertical lines: ->, <-, <->
title PERT: Project Name

map Kick.Off {
}
map task.1 {
    Start => End
}
map task.2 {
    Start => End
}
map task.3 {
    Start => End
}
map task.4 {
    Start => End
}
map task.5 {
    Start => End
}
Kick.Off --> task.1 : Label 1
Kick.Off --> task.2 : Label 2
Kick.Off --> task.3 : Label 3
task.1 --> task.4
task.2 --> task.4
task.3 --> task.4
task.4 --> task.5 : Label 4

Thanks - Pretty nice to be able to use for static diagrams..

Shame there is no tool with this diffable format that would support some nice PM like functionality like auto working out schedule change impact on next event etc.
