Grant Extension Request - Improving Perl 5


Dr. Nicholas Clark has requested an extension of $20,000 for his Improving Perl 5 grant. This grant started in September 2011 and has been running successfully since then. The requested extension would allow Nicholas to devote another 400 hours to the project. The funds for this extension would come from the Perl 5 Core Maintenance Fund.

As well as weekly reports posted on the p5p mailing list Nicholas provides detailed monthly reports, the most recent of these can be found in the following blog posts:

April 2013
March 2013
February 2013

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, email your comments to karen at
