[tl;dr Seeking feedback. Please read the GWT 2.0 grant application
draft before I submit it officially:
As you're aware, within *Europeana* I (and MANY others) have been working
on building a major grant application to the Wikimedia Foundation to
continue development of the GLAMwiki Toolset.
I think the last few months - since the toolset has been "public" - have
shown that there is widespread interest in (and usage of) the tool. It's
already become part of the "standard" things that we use when talking to
potential partners. However, that there are lots of things that can still
be improved in it.
As anyone who has ever written a large grant proposal knows, there is a LOT
of negotiation, behind the scenes that goes in to getting the document
supported by all the relevant stakeholders, and this is no exception. [Heck
- I chaired the first formal meeting about this project during Wikimania
So, it is with great pleasure that I can say that the GLAMwiki Toolset
grant application is *almost *ready to be submitted officially.
This is where *you* come in...
Many of you have already seen this grant in various states of construction
or have been part of the consultation process about what gets prioritised
and what doesn't. Now I would really appreciate if you could have another
look at the [hopefully] finished application. This is the chance to
identify any errors, missing elements, excellent examples I've forgotten,
logical flaws, spelling mistakes...
- If you like it, excellent. Please put your name on the "endorse" list
at the bottom.
- If you've got a comment/critique/suggestion, excellent. Tell me (on
the talkpage, email, morse-code, carrier-pigeon etc...)
Once any major points arising have been addressed, we'll then "flip the
switch" and formally submit the grant application.

p.s. In case you're wondering, we do have permission from the WMF grants
team to submit this application at this time, even thought it is
during the 'inspire
because it was already so far down the track of negotiation with various
Peace, love & metadata
Great that it works again! For some reason Flickr uploads are now blocked.
Anything that can be done about that?
