@arthurlutz No, all NGI (program title) are seperately managed R&D grant programs. But of course we are very happy to see federation of software forges also being supported through NGI DAPSI! In case you don't know ForgeFed, this is a project also aiming to federate software/version control systems to break through the current situation where FLOSS-work is usually limited to one platform/silo -> nlnet.nl/project/ForgeFed/

@NGIZero @forgefed Yes I know and follow forgefed, and have tried to build bridges between the two initiatives which share common goals. forum.fedeproxy.eu/search?q=fo is mentionned in numerous messages on the fedeproxy forum, and the other way around talk.feneas.org/t/milestones-g
