After an unsuccessful series of attempts to apply for jobs, I consider going freelance % now. My biggest obstacle is generating sources of income.
However, given that Gitea left money on the table last year and worked on Gitea before, I consider applying to work on it in 2023.
@dachary told me, that there is another round to apply for in November.
However, my employment contract has a termination period of six weeks to end of a quarter, i.e. if I can’t achieve a cancellation agreement my work would start 1st January (modulo some holiday period).
It’s the first time I would apply for a grant (or going freelance, to begin with), so I have some open questions:
- Would you be okay with me joining the team? (Is there a need?) I could focus on Frontend (and UX, up to a certain degree)
- Is it likely that not the whole grant is granted? What sums should I expect? (So I can plan accordingly)
- If several people apply for a grant on the same project (Gitea), is money be split among them?
- What accounting should I expect? (I’m a German resident - thinking about tax declaration and similar)
Looking forward to your replies.
