Running Grants (2009-V)

Grants updates:

  • Port PyYAML to Perl -- Ingy döt Net
    Ingy update: YAML::Perl is really coming together. Over 95% of the code is ported. I only port code once I have a failing test written to exercise that code. Just need to figure out how to tickle the other 5%.
    I plan on putting a big push in this weekend to get a release candidate version of YAML::Perl onto CPAN.
    The code rally is working quite well, and can parse tons of stuff the old could not. But still needs a bit more work before I can call it done.
    Then I plan to start writing lots of user doc, so that people know how to use the great new features.
  • Fixing Bugs in the Archive::Zip Perl Module -- Alan Haggai Alavi
    No updates.
  • Extending BSDPAN -- Colin Smith
    No updates.
  • Test::Builder 2 -- Michael G Schwern
    No updates.
  • Perl cross-compilation for linux and wince -- Vadim Konovalov
    No updates.
  • Tcl/Tk access for Rakudo -- Vadim Konovalov
    No updates.
  • Perl Survey -- Kieren Diment
    No updates.
  • Mojo Documentation Project -- Sebastian Riedel
    On hiatus until March 14th
  • Embedding perl into C++ applications -- Leon Timmermans
    Leon update: Done some work on importing pp_match from perl into my code and on the type conversion code. Spent most of my time on my presentation for this Friday though. I'll be putting it online soon.
  • Moose docs -- Dave Rolsky
    Dave update: I'm working writing the new recipes I discussed in the
    grant application. So far I've released Roles recipe 3 (applying a role
    to an object), Basics recipe 11 (BUILDARGS and BUILD). I've also checked
    in Meta recipe 7 (creating a custom meta-instance). I still need to
    write Meta recipe 6 and Basics recipe 8. However, for the latter, I need
    a new topic, since the feature it was supposed to cover is now covered
    in an existing recipe.
  • Integrating Padre with Parrot and Rakudo -- Gabor Szabo
    No updates.
  • Improving -- Eric and Tina
    Starting the grant.
  • A lightweight web framework for Perl 6 -- Ilya, Carl and Stephen
    Starting the grant.
