looking at DAPSI application, it has the following warning: "By ticking this box, I confirm the applicant(s) has not received funding for a similar project and that the applicant(s) has enough Operational Capacity to carry out the work. In addition, the applicant(s) gives consent to DAPSI consortium to share the needed information with other NGI RIAs projects for the only purpose of cross-check that there is not double funding or operational capacity conflict."
Maybe you can split some part off of the core of activities into a new project.
NGI0 --> Federated Gitea
DAPSI --> Extending, productizing federation, future roadmap prep
With a research component, UX study, ForgeFed v1.x, other vocabs, FedeProxy interop.
"How does federation support revolutionize what we can offer in terms of Unified Software Development paradigm?"
It is possible for other people to apply to DAPSI and pick tasks that do not overlap. Independent people / organizations can cooperate on the same topic... as long as they avoid redundancy 😜
This is a fine example of the benefits of being 100% transparent. All the details can be found in the Gitea issues.
I see.Yes, that depends.
If I would apply with the whole project at DAPSI: No.
Last time I had split the project in 2 parts for “cross-check that there is not double funding or operational capacity conflict.” and applied w. a university at DAPSI and w. 8 people at NGI0 which was rejected as well …
Since then there were 112 commits https://github.com/redaktor/widgets-preview/commits/master
Anyway, meanwhile I took Venture Capital and spoke with the EU https://socialhub.activitypub.rocks/t/2021-07-24-socialcg-policy-sig-meeting/1927/5 ff.
@gitea @humanetech @sl007 @sum In this instance the "we" is zeripath and techknowlogick : they applied as individuals. Around November 1st, 2021, they will know if the proposal was rejected. Or they will be notified that it enters the second round of evaluation and they will likely get the results early December 2021.
It would make sense for zeripath and techknowlogick to apply to DAPSI as well with exactly the same project but they will have to choose one if both are accepted.
