I disagree with this. A grant application is meant to give money for a
certain work. The background of the person applying for a grant has to
be taken into account for selection, for sure. But the grant itself
should be related to a work, and not to previous contributions.
If we want to recognize volunteer work and previous donations to the
project, then let's create a "QGIS contributor of the year prize" with a
dedicated amount of money offered, and vote for one every year. This
would be a nice way to keep people motivated.
But misusing a grant for work in this sense seems unfair to me.
