I'm glad of it though!  Jambunathan, would you be willing to put your code up on github?  Then we can perhaps all help out in a co-ordinated manner.

I started with org-html.el.

I am attaching a test.org and test.odt from my work area (*as it
is*). You will see that following things are taking shape:

4. Lists - Numbered, Bulleted, Description

If you od put it on github, maybe you can suggest minor features for people to work on -- i'm a lousy coder (& v. busy for about 3 more weeks) but maybe I and others on the list could help with some of the more tedious elements.
