Project scope

KEY QUESTION TO BE ANSWERED: What will you spend your time doing if this project is funded?

Example: "Wikimedia NY has already negotiated with the owner of the Algmeine Encyclopedie, that if the encyclopedia can be digitized, its owner will release it under a free license. Funding for this project will pay for the encyclopedia to be digitized and put into Wikisource. After that, it will be available for individual volunteers to use however they like, in the Yiddish Wikipedia." -->
