Ahem... as a relative newbie (I have no idea what the gold stars mean on the branch status page)... I\'d be willing to take a stab at it.

From my limited knowledge of the project I can share why I use Moz (decidedly fewer security vulns than the default proggie that comes with Win98SE), The pros and cons of choosing the branch (leading or bleeding edge?) or trunk (stability?), and where to find them (appropriate URLs), and a reminder to uninstall previous versions to prevent version collision.

Perhaps the thing is written already....
