And I'd add to that big thanks to Jeff for catching that email on the 
Foundations list about OpenNTF's 501c4, which set us in a new direction 
and allowed us to get through. Or at least increased our chances to get 
through since that gave us an extra argument that David used in his last 
letter to the IRS.

If I may suggest an amendment to your quote Jeff, I would not say the 
task was "difficult", but more that it was challenging, or required 
perseverance. I'm not sure what the right word is to express that, but 
difficult may be a bit much, maybe daunting if that is a valid word?
