work out how much work is covered by each.  this will
require you to do a time and budget estimation for
the *whole* suite of instructions - every piece of

if you need help with that, ask everyone else.
(for each instruction you need to do a thought
experiment "how many lines of HDL, how many unit tests"
then from PAST EXPERIENCE estimate the total number
of days. assume 1 month is appx EUR 3000 and back-calculate.
put that number for each instruction (or group)
into comment 0, add them up, and make that the total
for the task. this i have been doing in my head for
5 years based on 20 prior years project management.
now you *all* need to learn to do it)
