I did some work on
ssb-ahoy which I'm applying for maintenance funds for.
It's a library (here) which makes getting started with ssb + electron easier. I built it for patchbay, and it's currently in use in #ahau
What did you do, why?
I upgraded the electron version, and some other dependencies to latest electron (for security patches, performance). I also modified the API of the library, and improved the documentation, making it easier to use for beginners.
My major motivation was while supporting @zelf to build her first ssb-app, I knew that once she got to the "now make it an application others can use" step, that there would be this whole wall of complexity she might have to climb. I wanted to make sure it was easy and empowering.
$500 NZD (10 hours @ $50NZD / hr)
Who approves this?
I've been the custodian of this grant pool (the administration and communication around this was itself covered by a grant from the original Dfinity grant). I don't want to approve my own expense though, so I'll invite other people who have done maintenance work through this OC to yay/nay this.

Please feel free to ask me any questions. If there are no major blocks/ disagreement in a week from now, I'll consider this approved. If we find some block, we can reject this expense.
