Thanks for your interest in applying for this, Boris!

Individual project proposals are really best handled on the mailing
lists or forums dedicated to that project. In this case, the appropriate
list would be address@hidden, which I've included in the distribution.
Further messages in this thread should leave address@hidden out.

It will probably greatly help your messages getting to address@hidden
if you take the time to subscribe to that list (if you aren't already),
which you can get information about at
