README: Scoping your working hours

Hi all,

I reviewed some of the draft proposals we have received this year and I’m worried that some of you are not scoping your project correctly.

Aim for 40 hours per week, if you go slightly over or slightly under, it’s okay so long as you meet milestones. This will prevent you from burning out. The end goal is to have you become a LibreHealth contributor and community member.

Seeing that you want to work over 60 hours per week is a red flag for us. Don’t do this. We don’t care how many hours you work, but also don’t want to see you burn out. Our only concern is that you meet your milestones, blog regularly, and communicate publicly. That’s it. Saying you’re going to work over 60 hours per week isn’t going to impress us, it will worry us.
