I feel compelled to add my 0.02$ to this discussion. I wrote the following down as answers to the two questions posed by the Sourceforge representative. I am not a developer, but a semi-knowledgable user.
Org-mode has truly changed the way I do everything. The following points represent all of 5 minutes of effort. There is no way any answer to these questions can be compressed into 140 words, much less 140 characters.
1. Our project is:: a multifacted utility outliner/todo and agenda organizer/notetaking/supermacro publishing system, in a dynamic collaborative state of development that renders it simple and useful, while riding at the cutting edge of technology.
2. We should win because:: - attracts many people from various walks of life - the development model is responsive to the needs of users at all levels - OM is immediately intuitively useful, yet has such depth even
old timers have not mastered many aspects - many users are captivated by the utilitarian nature of org-mode
Perhaps all this is far off the mark.
