I think that the recent developments on the PRP verification front are something that the board should consider at their next meeting. Perhaps an award could be granted.
There was a clause for that, but it was discontinued about a decade ago. I think it was part of dividing up the proceeds of the 1M or 10M digit prime EFF awards.
