I thought that this information in the stack report would be enough:

Identifier:      org.gnu.Emacs
Version:         Version 23.3 (9.0)
OS Version:      Mac OS X 10.7 (11A511)

It's the version from http://emacsformacosx.com/

What else should I send?

A script to convert the internal database of OmniFocus to org-mode
with minimal metadata loss. In particular, it maintains repeating
events and multi-line notes fields.

Any idea what's likely to be my problem?
