Definition of the score is found in 3.2 of the rules.


  • We will approve and fund the RPerl User Documentation.
  • We will approve but will not fund the RPerl Alioth Benchmarks, Part 2 in this round according to the rules 3.3 and 3.4. We will vote again on this proposal in our November round based on the rules 1.2.
  • We will not approve other proposals.



RPerl is an ambitious project and it is quite interesting. Before we spend money on all the subprojects, we would like to see 1) more documentation so it's used and evaluated by more people 2) performance benchmark given what the project attempts to do.

In this round, we will approve and fund the documentation proposal. Mark Jensen was appointed as the Grant Manager.

As stated above, we will review the benchmark proposal again in the November round. For all other grants, we are more than happy to continue the discussion in the future rounds after the documentation and more benchmarks are published.


Is blogging dead? No. Is blogging platforms market saturated? Maybe yes, maybe no, but we know there is high competition. Regardless of quality or uniqueness of Plerd, we cannot be certain how much it will be adopted in this competitive environment. So we will not able to fund this. We wish success for this Perl based blogging engine.

Next round

The next round is in November. You can submit proposals now.
