I wanted to keep everyone in the loop and provide more than "SoonTM" regarding the current status of SBC7. It's been a week since submissions closed, so I think it's a good time for an update.
First of all, the numbers:
We received over 100 SBC entries this challenge. Considering the factors, I'm highly impressed with the numbers of submissions, as well as the quality. The feedback here has also been tremendous and I appreciate the community really creating some great conversation here and incorporating it into their work/projects.
We're currently almost through first round of deliberations. A few of our team (who will be tackling final deliberations) will be travelling next week, so this unfortunately pushes back our original announcement time-frame. We had hoped to get results out on the 30th of August, but it looks like it will be by the 7th of September at the latest. This also applies to support (previous winner) applicants. I apologize for any inconvenience, but this is to ensure every project has a fair look by multiple people. In the future, the SBC / Support process will become more refined.
I really appreciate all of your feedback and patience. It has been incredibly valuable!
As always, I'm available to answer any questions: zac(at)stellar(dot)org
