    At IHP we've been using Algora for a while now and it works really great. Here's e.g. one PR that was merged last week with a bounty attached Everything was set up in less than 15 minutes and ioannis and zafer have been super helpful with any questions we had.

    In general I think this is a good direction and an interesting take on the open question around sustainable open source. Congrats on the launch and keep up the great work! :)

I acknowledge what you mean by blurry lines and how/when they might occur. but as I said before, when specs/scope/acceptance-criteria are in place, it's really hard to go wrong
