One describes the project as top-level *vf:Process* and requests all resources planned as inputs. In practice such campaign represents all the *vf:Request* intents casted and based on requiremetns for the execution of that top-level process. See: [relating Intent to a Process, and to other resources via its inputs/outputs](https://github.com/valueflows/valueflows/issues/118). +* Similar to a 'threshold' used in monetary currency based crowdfunding. People can make commitments to provide requested resource with condition of all required inputs having commitments. Some inputs can get marked as 'optional' which works similar as 'optimal' amount of credits - higher than minimum 'threshold'. A checklist, with one item per 'resource type' replaces the numeric progress bar. +* One can use [Dependent Demand - +a Business Pattern for Balancing Supply and Demand](http://hillside.net/plop/plop97/Proceedings/haugen.pdf) to aggregate inputs of the top-level 'project process'
