We want to thank @Brian Deery and all those at Factom Inc who we've found to be very supportive during this process thus far.

Deliverables

We promised the following in our grant proposal:

"Who" has been very busy these last two weeks. He finished up his planned documentation and we coordinated with Factom Inc (who continue to be great to work with - shoutout to @Brian Deery ) to begin tackling specific tasks, the first of which you can see a PR for below. Who also found another critical bug which we'll provide more information regarding in the future. The items below have also been edited into the first post of this thread.
