Huh? I don't see anything about requiring coordination here. Just bill
the hours for your next month. Did I miss something?

What should I do if I work more than the hours allocated?

If we allocate you 10 paid work hours, it means that we can
pay you 10 hours for the given month. If you are not ready
to offer the supplementary work hours, you should manage your
work so that you don't go over this limit.

If you want to cross the limit (in month M) because you want to wrap up
the thing that you are working on, you can do it but you should count the
supplementary hours as anticipated work hours for the following month
(M+1). That is, don't mention those extra work hours in your report
for month M and don't invoice them for month M. Instead, in month M+1
you start your month with those supplementary hours counting as work
already done.

To continue the above example, in month M, you got assigned 10 hours but
you made 11 hours. Your invoice and your report mentions 10h. In month
M+1, you got again assigned 10 hours but you will only do 9h of real work.
Despite this, the report and invoice will again be of 10h because they
will include the supplementary work hour done the month before.

This can happen if you have unexpected urgent work to do when you have
reached your hours for the month. For example a regression in a previous
