I have a user manual for ODM in MS Word will try to wikize it as time permits.
if you want it in word let me know.
Also I think it would be great if you could allow users to “donate” to the project. My company gets a PO you invoice and my company and they pay the invoice.
Maybe I would get a vote per $ 🙂 to bump up paying voters requests.

Wiki docs would be great! I could also use the MS Word version as well.
As for the donations, I have typically told people privately that they can “Sponsor” a feature by donating effort, or $$ to the project but I have not put in place any official donation strategy. You might be on to something there.
