I read through the README but it seems overwhelming to have 10
directories. I am not saying it is not good just that I will not be
able to handle those. Even now when I have just three main files -
inbox, work and archive, I am very bad at refiling items (I do it but
rarely). I mostly rely on Agenda views to make things make sense for
me. With 10 directories, I will surely never be able to refile
anything as half of the time I will just be spending time in deciding
where the item belongs.

It surely will be good for more diligent people unlike me.

I liked 3.1, 1.2 and 2.2 in that order. The reason for 3.1 it gives contrast 
between the navigation panel, banner and highlights the request for Donations.

I can reproduce this. If I use `org-agenda` and then select `m` to Match
a TAG\PROP\TODO query, it does show all the items marked with children
tags. However, if you use `org-agenda-filter-by-tag` it returns the
empty agenda view.

You can use org-refile-targets to explicitly tell which files to include when 
you want to Copy and Refile. I am not near my computer, otherwise I would have 
shared an example.
