The BOINC Work Group committee is researching "how BOINC can be made more user friendly, easier for anyone to set up their own short- or long term project, and for the community to join in on those endeavours. The goal is to get more people to run BOINC, to join in coding all parts that make BOINC (client, manager, web site, forums, projects, etc.), to test everything, to get them to set up their own projects, to make BOINC a future-proof and reliable brand that isn't dependent on any one person in particular." Being one of the larger projects, Primegrid is hosting a discussion: https://www.primegrid.com/forum_thread.php?id=7538&sort=6 This is inline with the NFS funding a new model for BOINC : http://boinc.berkeley.edu/tbd.php Relevant discussion: https://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=11647#78714 Apologies if this discussion is already underway elsewhere. I didn't see a relevant thread.
