Your answer
What are the concrete, specific outputs and outcomes this award would produce? *
Please describe what you would use the funds for - what you are going to build, hack or fix, and how that would be of benefit to the world. As long as the costs are well explained, we are happy to consider funding activities whose benefit is harder to quantify than adding features - for example, maintenance, standardization, metrics, usability, user support, community building, tooling improvements, performance or documentation. Please also explain how you arrived at the dollar figure requested, by breaking it down as necessary into smaller pieces. The level of detail given should reflect how much money you are requesting; a $250k award will need much more detail than a $20k one. (Max 8k chars)

This is not just about whether the goal is important, but also about whether you are the right team to achieve it. All endorsements must include the sentence: "I have read the text of this application and I believe the applicants are technically capable of achieving the work outlined." (Max 4k chars)
