    Hi Andy,
    Could you consider adding screenshots and link to documentation.

    I would like to hold off approving this plugin for a bit in order to hear whether Andy and Tõnis Tartes (the contributor of the original mindmap plugin) might wish to collaborate and work together on a common plugin (and thus avoid a fork). I've messaged both of them to get their thoughts. Peace - Anthony
