May 2018 Grant Votes

The Grants Committee has concluded the voting of the May 2018 round. My apologies for the delay.

There were two proposals this round, but neither submission was approved.

Voting results: Not approved: 4 no votes, 5 abstentions

The committee is hesitant to fund a book at this time; there are several books on the market today; how would a freshman effort compare to the already available books?

An alternative suggestion was to break down the work into much smaller deliverables (like articles), and submit a single one of those as a proposal.

Several members suggested that Perl6 grants focused on the ecosystem (modules) would be more likely to be approved (and we have a recent history of funding core work on performance).

Voting results: Not approved: 6 no votes, 3 abstentions.

Given the number of existing options for installing modules, this project was viewed as having limited community benefits. Additionally, considered to be difficult to complete correctly, so a higher risk.

Next Round

We accept proposals throughout the year; our next round of voting is starting today, look for another post very soon!

You can submit proposals now. If you want to help with funding and increase our budget, please visit our donations page. We sincerely appreciate all the donors which make the grant program possible. Also see the press releases for the recent major donations.
