Hi Marios, apologies for not taking the time to reply on the other email. A weekly planning makes more sense, as it allows to track progress and fix delays. As you've seen it is easier to get distracted, lose the bigger image and get stuck/obsessed in details if you don't do a realistic planning. Setting up small but achievable goals is a good way of overcoming such situations, instead of setting very generic goals that should be completed in X months... Regarding the Spacy.io proposal (but other proposals as well) a well structured and realistic proposal is what we expect to read, showing motivation and also the ways you're thinking of "attacking" the problem. Personally I'd prefer to read a proposal including many details, ideas and even reflections, rather than a short version of the above. Motivation is also important, why one wants to deal with a specific project. I cannot comment on specific details of the work included for Spacy, the process is well defined on the link included from the Spacy's page, but for sure testing is necessary in any phase of this project. What I'd really like to see is practical uses of this work, if we consider the act of adding greek on Spacy as the core part of this project, the spice would be what one can do after this is completed, and there's lot of room for creativity there.
