The Grants Committee has concluded the voting of the January round.
Proposal in this round
- Ado - a rapid active commotion (framework for web-projects on Mojolicious), Krasimir Berov, USD 4,500
Definition of the score is found in 3.2 of the rules.
While it is always difficult to make decision on grant proposals, this was a particularly tough one. We understand this is a serious project with good amount of interest from the community including multiple code committers.
The main reason that led us to the negative conclusion is as follows: there are already plenty of web frameworks and CMSes. It is not a bad thing to have another one but we will not be able to fund this "another one" which may or may not attract new users given there are just too many choices. For this specific area with high competition, we tend to spend money on marketing, promotion or tutorial of software which is completed, established and/or adopted. Otherwise on initiative to solve a specific problem.
We hope the success of Ado.
The next round is in March. You can submit proposals now.
