Grant Extension Request: Maintaining the Perl 5


Tony Cook has requested an extension of $20,000 for his Maintaining the Perl 5 grant. This will allow him to dedicate another 400 hours to this work. During this grant he sent regular reports to the p5p mailing list as well as providing monthly summary reports that have been published on this site, the most recent of which are linked below:

Before we make a decision on this extension, we would like to have a period of community consultation. Please leave feedback in the comments field below or if you prefer, send email with your comments to makoto at We request that all the feedback should be sent by April 25th.

If successful this extension will be funded from the Perl 5 Core Maintenance Fund.

Note: The request was received in February and TPF's internal process took time to post this. Apologies.


I'm definitely in favour!

Tony has provided a long stream of contributions, and I support his request because I want to see that stream continue.
