Suggest a project to the foundation board and an amount that you think
is reasonable for the task. I know (and most of us) that you are
qualified for almost anything FFmpeg related so just pick something that
you would prefer to work on. Depending on the suggestion the board will
then decide if we want to fund the project or not. As long as the
project is a welcome contribution to the FFmpeg project as a whole I see
no reason why it wouldn't be accepted.
