Grant Extension Request - Improving Perl 5


Nicholas Clark has requested an extension of $20,000 for his Improving Perl 5 grant. The grant, that is currently running, is on track to finish successfully at the end of March. This extension would allow Nicholas to devote another 400 hours to the project.

Details of the work completed so far can be read in the following blog posts:

Month 1
Month 2
Month 3
Month 4
Month 5

Before we make a decision on this extension we would like to have a period of community consultation that will last for seven days. Please leave feedback in the comments or if you prefer send email with your comments to karen at


Yes, please.

This is not a difficult decision. There is absolutely no reason whatever not to approve this. It has been an excellent investment.

Nicholas has done great work. I look forward to more with anticipation and delight. (Thanks Nicholas!)

20k$ for 400 Nick hours is a steal. Please approve.

Yes please - more Nick more of the time
