"Our project is a full-featured GUI Subversion client which integrates
seamlessly into Windows Explorer. Version control made easier!" (133

>> 2. Complete this sentence, also in about 140 characters: "We should win

"We should win because our large and active user base appreciates the
reliable and intuitive Windows interface to Subversion." (124 chars)

Agreed. I can't see how a video of developers is going to persuade anyone.
