Grant Extension Request: Maintaining the Perl 5 Core

1 Comment

Dave Mitchell has requested an extension of $20,000 for his Maintaining the Perl 5 Core grant. He also has requested an hourly rate change from $50 to $60. This will allow him to dedicate another 333 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

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

Yes, please! We'd really be sunk without Dave's work and the pay raise is long overdue. For next time it would be nice if the overall amount could be increased so we don't have to reduce the number of hours in the grant in order to pay a slightly higher rate.
