A contract for this sort of work is always a possibility. That's 
what the HR fund is for:


Anyone serious about doing a project like this (any relatively 
complex project, not just a new GC) can get in touch and we can 
discuss it. I'm not saying the foundation *would* pay for any 
particular project, but the discussion and possibly a meeting 
could lead to that if agreement is reached that it's worth doing.
