We've made it into the finals of the Sourceforge community awards for
the categories
* Best Project
* Best Tool or Utility for Developers

But to have our nomination accepted, we have to answer some questions.
Below are the questions and answers from me and Lübbe. Please comment
and help us improve those answers best as you can:

1. Complete this sentence in about 140 characters: "Our project is
[-foo-]." For example, "Our project is a tool that helps you wash your

Lübbe's answer:
TortoiseSVN is a MS-Windows client for the Subversion version control
system. It's a shell extension which integrates seamlessly into the

my answer:
Our project "TortoiseSVN" is a Subversion client for Windows which
integrates eamlessly into the explorer.

2. Complete this sentence, also in about 140 characters: "We should win
because [-bar-]." For example, "We should win because we have a strong
community and we solve a universal problem."

Lübbe's answer:
We should win because not only developers can benefit, but also
non-technical users. TortoiseSVN is easy-to-use and possibly the best
Subversion client there is.

my answer:
We should win because we have a very big and active user base which
appreciates what our tool can do for them.

3. Please provide a logo (or screenshot, if you'd prefer) for your
project. It should be at least 640x480, but we'll also be showing it
as a thumbnail.

Lübbe has created a logo - see attachement.

4. This one is optional, but it could make a big difference. We'd like
to show our voters a video that introduces them to the core members of
your team. Send along the URL (on YouTube) and we'll make sure they
see it!

Ok, that's not gonna happen - I'm definitely way too ugly to have a
video or photo of me published anywhere.

So please, tell us your opinion and better answers.
