I’d believe that on a 30h bases in a week, for 3 months, it made more sense to work on one family of 4-6 weights/styles. It’s an average of one weight per two weeks which is more than enough think for someone with basic knowledge in typedesign to familiarise him/herself with the Greek script and run it through us for help and ideas. Also working on a single family it would be more helpful for you to get more familiar with the contrast of they Greek forms and how it works in different styles and weights. >> What about the scope of greek glyphs?

About character sets, have a look at the updated charsets that we set up for Google this year, https://github.com/google/fonts/tree/master/tools/encodings/GF%20Glyph%20Sets/Greek <https://github.com/google/fonts/tree/master/tools/encodings/GF%20Glyph%20Sets/Greek> I think for this project the GF Greek Core or the GF Greek Plus would be enough. best, Irene
