Request for payment on Nlnet funding (first 6 months of work)

6 months after the beginning of the NLnet funding we have completed the following tasks :
(Sources : spreadsheet of milestones and description pad of milestones.)

  • Milestone x | gitlab issue | result | time spent | amount to request in euros

  4. Milestone 3.1.1 | gitlab issue | https://doc.madada.fr | 1 day out of 1 | 400 euros

  5. Milestone 3.1.2 | gitlab issue | https://doc.madada.fr | 1 day out of 1 | 400 euros

  9. Milestone 3.2.2 Video tutorial 2 « How to use MaDada » | gitlab issue | Vidéo 2 published on our peertube channel | 2 days out of 2 | 800 euros

  1. Milestone 3.5.1 Spread - Link FOI based publications on madada.fr | gitlab issue | see last comment on issue | 2 days out of 2 | 800 euros

  2. Milestone 3.5.2| gitlab issue | see last comment on issue | 2 days out of 3 | 800


Total days of work so far : 2 + 2 + 2 + 1 + 1 + 3.5 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 21.5 days
Total amount in euros (1 day = 400 euros) : 21.5 * 400 = 8600 euros


Analysis on remaining work :

What remains to be done : 107 days in total - 21.5 days = 85.5 days of work

This amount of 85.5 days of work left for the remaining 6 months is not completely true as our work on several issues has already began, but we chose not to request for payment now because we have not sensible finished results yet to show.

Out of these 85.5 reamining days of work we have approx. 30 days of work that has already began (documentation, writing procedures, last video tutorial, community-based tools and new features to develop) or is waiting something to begin (example is the results of the security audit that we have to wait for in order to perform the correction needed).

We should be careful and focus on the remaining 53 days of work on issues that we did not begin looking at at all : these are mostly the tagging work and the link to wikidata+other tools work). Our next team meeting should be on organising work on these.

For the sake of transparency, the request above was incorrect, and of the 11 points listed, only the following were acceptable by NLNet:

4 . Milestone 3.1.1 | gitlab issue | https://doc.madada.fr | 1 day out of 1 | 400 euros
5 . Milestone 3.1.2 | gitlab issue | https://doc.madada.fr | 1 day out of 1 | 400 euros
7 . Milestone 3.4.3 Organize community help on Discourse forum | gitlab issue | https://forum.madada.fr | 2 days out of 2 | 800 euros
8 . Milestone 3.2.1 Video tutorial 1 « What is Ma Dada » | gitlab issue | Vidéo 1published on our peertube channel | 2 days out of 2 | 800 euros
9 . Milestone 3.2.2 Video tutorial 2 « How to use MaDada » | gitlab issue | Vidéo 2 published on our peertube channel | 2 days out of 2 | 800 euros
10 . Milestone 3.5.1 Spread - Link FOI based publications on madada.fr | gitlab issue | see last comment on issue | 2 days out of 2 | 800 euros

For a total of 10 days * 400 euros = 4000 euros.

The remaining items can only be paid once completed.
