There are some funds given to the OpenAstronomy umbrella organization as part of its participation on Google Summer of Code. As explained in Move GSOC money to SunPy · Issue #84 · astropy/astropy-project · GitHub (soon), these funds have already been transferred to OA.
My question is: how can member projects make use of these funds? For example, in poliastro we set up an OpenCollective account to track our expenses:
Please let me know if this is not the appropriate place to discuss these things.
In previous years we have transferred the money from your projects to poliastro correct?
I don’t see why we couldn’t do the same for the 2021 money, but I haven’t really had a chance to look at it.
Correct me if I’m wrong but I think this transfer has never happened
In any case, here are the ways to transfer the funds to poliastro:
No, it hasn’t yet. I’ll sort that out in the coming weeks.
Thanks! - I made some progress, but I’ve not finalised it yet. I’ll do it soon.
Hope it’s OK that I keep bothering folks in this thread roughly every 2 months?
Certainly it’s OK. I have done some progress and I believe NumFOCUS has almost sorted it out. Let’s hope we can have a solution before the solstice!!
A million thanks @dpshelio !
The form seems to be geared towards asking for specific refunds. Given that this might be a special case, I used it anyway, introducing the Open Collective bank details, and will continue the discussion with NumFOCUS.
The funds have arrived Case closed! A million thanks @dpshelio
