Re: Bug Resilience Program of German Sovereign Tech Fund

Hi Paul,
thanks for taking a look into the application!

As near as I can make out, the Sovereign Tech Fund Bug Resilience Program application <> provides funding only for bug bounties, where the bugs are security vulnerabilities. (The other help it offers is all in-kind.)

I don't think you are right. Citing from the application you linked, I am referring to "direct contribution":

Sounds pretty much what autoconf and automake need! And you are right, there are two other ways to apply for help, both are related to security: a bug bounty program and security audits. I think they would be valuable, but probably later.
