BigmenPixel submits CCS proposal to 'verify' and maintain Monero GUI flatpak package for 1 more year

BigmenPixel1 has submitted a CCS proposal2 to continue maintaining the Monero GUI flatpak package (org.getmonero.Monero3) for 1 year, and obtain the verified app4 status on Flathub5:

I have been maintaining org.getmonero.Monero on Flathub since July 2021. Now I want to move its manifest to the monero-gui repository. After that, I will also give the application the verified status on Flathub. [..] 1 year of maintenance to be paid after performance review ..

Total funding: 10 XMR.

ETA: 12 months.

Milestones overview

The proposal comes days after Whonix founder adrelanos6 confirmed7 that he has no plans to submit an extension request for his expired CCS8, and recommended using the official Monero flatpak installation method9 instead.

This is an ongoing story and the report will be updated when new information is available.
