Hello, folks,
Please review my application for Adobe & Nokia money. I will send the
corrected version [1] tomorrow.

Openmeetings is a teamwork software featuring video-chat, whiteboard
and cooperative document editing. This is a featured plug-in for open
source distant education programs (Dokeos, Moodle), and it allows
corporate/educational collaboration. The openmeetings is developed via
multi-national distributed team (Germany, Russia, India, China, etc).

Why we choose Flash? Well, being open source fan I would gladly choose
an open technology, but someone should pay for a private video-codec.

Having a focus on educational institutions, we have to think of
mobile devices - any schoolchild uses them. We want using the
provided grant to create a mobile device port (flash lite 3) of to our
software. This mostly incudes learning Open Screen Project, adjusting
user interfaces for different resolutions, re-packaging (thinking of
provisioning), and smoothing performance problems.

Three $7,500 grants will be distributed between individuals willing
to help, and a committer from our company will be integrating patches
from the whole task force. Each contributor will get
payments by completing three stages in the Google Summer of Code
manner. Two developers
who get Nokia's money will be responsible for each Nokia series (using
devices or emulators), and
the the mighty one will be responsible for the overall design and usability.

The project will last for three months. Assuming we get money in a
month, and spend another month collecting talents, we can complete the
project on February, 28.

"the the mighty one" -> then the mighty one
"of to our software" -> of our software
The letter is too short and is missing some details, I think... I would
be more thorough on the instruments we are willing to work with and what
Nokia series we are willing to support. - Symbian 9.1, 9.3, 9.5? All of
them have the same Flash Lite, as I understand, why do we need three
guys for that purpose?

Rodion, thanks!

from the whole task force. Each contributor will get
payments by completing three stages in the Google Summer of Code
manner. The participants will define their workscope themselves, and write
proposals, though I envision this in a following way.

1. One (the author of the best proposal) is selected to lead the work
and guide overall client design and usability.
2. One is selected to make server side changes.
3. One is responsible for porting to particular Nokia models (using
devices or emulators), including careful testing and bug fixing.

The project will last for three months. Assuming we get money in a
month, and spend another month collecting talents, we can complete the
project on February, 28.

JFYI, I got an answer.


Dear Alexei Fedotov ,

Thank you for your submission to the Open Screen Project Fund for your
application: openmeetings .
We regret to inform you that we have reviewed your submission and have
had to make the hard decision of not funding your idea.
Due to the volume of submissions, we are not able to provide feedback
on your project or elaborate on the reasons behind the decision not to
fund.

We encourage you to continue working on your innovative idea and hope
you manage to raise the required funding through alternate channels.

Thank you again for your interest,
The Open Screen Project Fund Committee
