    3333'''Which parts of the project will NLnet's contribution be used for?'''
     34
    3435The contribution will be used to fund a developer to work on the creation/porting of a distributed data store for I2P. This would allow providing internal services (to some degree) while the original content owner is offline, automatic distributed mirroring of content and redundant hosting of updates to I2P or its applications. Especially providing easy redundancy to the I2P updates would be extremely beneficial to the project. It's one of the few points where I2P is still centralized (only a few internal websites that host the updates).

    3637'''Compare your own project with existing projects; what's new and original?'''
     38
    3739Unlike many other projects, I2P is extremely dynamic and almost entirely distributed. There are no central communication points to distribute data about others peers (there is a 'seednode' system, but it's dynamic: if any seednode falls away, it will automatically get replaced). Each peer checks speed and reliability of others peer for himself (so nobody else needs to be trusted).

    4143'''How will you promote these developments to your target community?'''
     44
     45The person working on the distributed data store will blog about the developments. Updates can also be prominently featured on the website front page. In addition, and perhaps most importantly, the developments will be incorporated into the I2P project, which will show the new features to the entire current community.
