Grant Extension Request: Maintaining the Perl 5 Core (Dave Mitchell)

1 Comment

Dave Mitchell has requested an extension of $20,000 for his Maintaining Perl 5 grant. 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 by July 10th 2018.

The funds for this extension would come from the Perl 5 Core Maintenance Fund.

I think Dave is doing a great job and it would be crazy not to renew his grant!
