November 2017 Archives

Tony Cook recently requested an extension of his Maintaining the Perl 5 Grant.

I'm pleased to announce that the Board of Directors approved extension of another $20,000. It'll allow him to dedicate another 400 hours to this work.

I would like to thank the community members who took time to comment on this grant extension request and our sponsors who made funding the grant possible through our Perl 5 Core Maintenance Fund. For the fund status, please also see P5CMF running out of funds.

I also appreciate Tony Cook, who publishes regular progress report on his work.

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.

Call For Proposals: November 2017 Round

No Comments

The Grants Committee has expended its budget for the period ending with 2017.

In accordance with the TPF rules of operation (http://www.perlfoundation.org/rulesofoperation), grants evaluations are stalled until further notice. I'm expecting that we'll be able to re-open evaluations starting in the January 2018 period.

Thanks to all the TPF sponsors that make the grants process possible. Please consider becoming one and donating at http://donate.perlfoundation.org/

If you have further questions, please contact me at tpf-grants-secretary at perl-foundation.org.

Grant Report - Complete YAML::PP - October 2017

No Comments

Tina has put >50hrs in on YAML::PP, as she describes in her blog post. Some highlights:

  • 23 tests added to the standard test suite
  • Updates to the YAML Test Matrix (which is a nice overview of YAML compliance across implementations in several languages)
  • Under-hood work on YAML::XS boolean handling and YAML flow-style.
