I agree with you, Brendan. Since we, as GTG developers, don't know a lot about Zim it's a bit difficult and early to consider collaboration between both projects. I also think that both applications should focus on its primary goal and utility since there's already a lot of work to do with that. However a constructive and collaborative use is possible through the use of plugins and such. Maybe we'll see some kind of convergence coming in the future, and I would be very happy with that, since I'm also convinced that there exists a strong link between task organization and notes as previously said in this discussion. But until then let's keep us focused on our specific objectives.
