When I was reading the past email/conversation, I remembered that I
got an impression
that Outreachy was regarded as more like a  "contractor" in the way
Outreachy was mentioned.
(we want to get xyz done but we have to pay x amount of money to them.)

However, I looked through the email in the past and I couldn't find
the record of
it. (It looks all reasonable to me.) So I must have been mistaken.

Please forget about what I said and I am sorry about the confusion.
