Hi, I am currently applying for this MR, however, there seems to be a glitch in the setting of the application form.

In the milestone section, each milestone is required to have a “token” field, but the token field is not editable. This prevents us from saving any milestones. I have instead added the milestones to the question “Describe in discrete steps your plan for accomplishing your project” in my application.

Looking at older submissions of this MR, it seems they do not have the token field specified in each milestone. My guess is that someone recently added the requirement of the token field, but forgot to make it editable.

Please advise what would be the best way to solve this. Thank you!
