Call for an extension of the * ZIP draft submission deadline — Aug 31, 2019
I think it would be more than fair, necessary and good if the deadline at least for the draft submission would be extended with at least 2 weeks.
Reasoning: While the discussion itself begun more or less allready in January and some proposal authors made their proposals allready at the end of june, just the recent days we, the proposal makers, get just now more detailed information about guidelines from the foundation and even a statement of the ECC as an answer to the foundations guidelines is still being “internally discussed”.
Having in mind that the foundation just now came out with their guidelines for further funding and the ECC’s answer is still on it’s way i think it’s more than fair to call for an extension of the deadline with at least 14 days so proposal makers can review, re-think and adjust their proposals and/or new proposals can be made that fit the new facts we just got and will get these days.
Having about only 10 days time from today doesn’t sound realistic IF someone wants to make a proposal with all the new facts, guidelines, thoughts, possibilities presented these days.
