It is likely that the 10 tutorials will not be finished until the end of the timeframe set for the completion of However I a

I will not start a new proposal about the remaining funds of 299KSM until that milestone of 10 tutorials is completed. As a compensation of the delay I already put more time into advertising the project than initially intended:
