October 2017 Archives

The Perl 5 Core Maintenance Fund was established at YAPC::NA 2011 by Jesse Vincent and Karen Pauley as a continuation of the previous Booking.com grant. It is intended to be "used for the maintenance and improvement of the Perl 5 core."

Since its inception, the P5CMF has received over half of a million dollars in donations, and has provided funding for eight different individuals to contribute over 9,000 service hours towards improving performance, stability, and features for Perl 5. (Full history here)

This is a monthly report by Tony Cook on his grant under Perl 5 Core Maintenance Fund. We thank the TPF sponsors to make this grant possible.

Chad has been working on his Test2 manual. The fact that he is, also, maintaining Test2 modules, and implementing or refactoring some portions of these modules make the documentation process harder, as it need the changes done before documenting them.

Nevertheless, in the last month, Chad has been updating the documentation given outdated information, and added some new sections. He also added a lot of new section titles referring subjects he intends to write about.

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 perlfoundation.org. We request that all the feedback should be sent by Oct 29th.
