📝 Process

  1. Grant Application:
    1. Fork this repository
    2. In the newly created fork, create a copy of the application-template.md. In other words: In the GitHub web interface, you need to create a new file and copy the content of the application-template.md inside the new file. Don't change the template file directly!
    3. Label the file as "project_name.md".
    4. Fill out the template with the details of your project.
    5. Once you have completed the application, click on "create new pull request".
    6. Sign off on the terms and conditions presented by claassistantio as Contributor License Agreement (CLA). You might need to reload the pull request to see the comment by claassistantio.
  2. Application Review:
    1. Committee can issue comments and request changes on the pull request.
    2. The application is accepted when one-third of the committee approves a pull request, the terms and conditions have been agreed and all requested changes are addressed.
  3. Milestone Delivery:
    1. Fork the Grant Milestone Delivery repo with the same GitHub account, which you used to submit the application!
    2. In the newly created fork, create a copy of the milestone-delivery-template.md.
    3. Label the file as "project_name_milestone_number.md".
    4. Fill out the invoice form.
    5. Fill out the template with the details of your milestone including a link to the initial pull request.
    6. Once you have completed the application, click on "create new pull request".
  4. Milestone Review:
    1. Evaluators can issue comments and request changes on the pull request.
    2. Grants Evaluators can approve a pull request to accept the deliverable.
  5. Milestone Payment:
    1. The Operations Team receives a notification once the delivery was accepted or after two weeks without any feedback after the initial delivery. As soon as feedback is provided by the evaluators, this feedback first needs to be resolved.
    2. Operations Team makes the payment to the Bitcoin address specified in the initial application.

Grant application can be amended at any time, necessitating a reevaluation by the Committee.
