Perl 6 Release Goals - Grant Extension Request


Jonathan Worthington has requested an extension of $10,000 for his Perl 6 Release Goals grant. The funds for this extension would come from the Perl 6 Core Development Fund. The requested extension would allow Jonathan to devote another 250 hours to the project.

Jonathan has provided a detailed report for the work done so far, which also provides details of the work he plans to carry out if the extension is successful. He also provided regular updates on his blog.

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


+1, Jonathan had been working very nicely on NFG, NSA and GLR, plus many bugs/stability fixing and optimization. Thank you very much, Jonathan!

Please do extend this grant. jnthn has been a phenomenal force in implementing the Rakudo Perl 6 compiler and supporting it on MoarVM and the JVM. Anything that can be done to keep his focus on Perl 6 can only be good.

+1 indeed.

Thank you jnthn++ for the work completed and the work ahead.

+1 to jnthn of course!

I really would like to see this grant extended. Jonathan has done a lot of work on his free time, and cannot continue doing that forever. If a grant like this can keep him doing this work, it is more than worth the money.

+1. Jonathan's been doing fantastic work.



+1 for one of the top-producing elves in the workshop. Christmas has been getting shinier by the day with him on the job.
