Grant Extension Request
Fri, 01-Jul-2016 by
Dave Mitchell has requested an extension of $20,000 for his Maintaining the Perl 5 Core grant. This will allow him to dedicate another 400 hours to this work. During this grant he sent weekly reports to the p5p mailing list as well as providing monthly summary reports that have been published on this blog, the most recent of which are linked below:
"Report for Month 30":http://news.perlfoundation.org/2016/04/maintaining-the-perl-5-core-re-26.html
"Report for Month 31":http://news.perlfoundation.org/2016/05/maintaining-the-perl-5-core-re-27.html
"Report for Month 32":http://news.perlfoundation.org/2016/06/maintaining-the-perl-5-core-re-28.html
Before we make a decision on this extension we would like to have a period of community consultation that will last for one week. Please leave feedback in the comments or if you prefer send email with your comments to karen at perlfoundation.org.
If successful this extension will be funded from the "Perl 5 Core Maintenance Fund":http://www.perlfoundation.org/perl_5_core_maintenance_fund.
Yes, please renew this. Dave has done some great work. I'm particularly looking forward to the sub call speedups in 5.24 (once I can use it at $WORK), and I also appreciate the great effort he put into things like Scope::Upper and Coro.
I too support extending funding for Dave's great work.
