May Votes

Just a quick update about the grant applications for May, 2006. Regrettably, no applications were approved. We generally don't publish the rejected applications because we don't want to make the applicants feel awkward, but I do have the unenviable task of informing the applicants not only that their grants were not approved, but also giving them a rough summary of why the grants were not approved.

For this round, it typically boiled down to three things.

  1. No grant amount listed. This is an automatic rejection.
  2. Grant amounts too high. Rarely do we authorize $10K grants.
  3. Unclear benefits to the Perl community at large.

The next round of grants will be voted on in August and I look forward to your applications! (Hopefully this bit of news won't be so daunting as to intimidate folks).
