Dave Mitchell has requested an extension of $20,000 for his [Maintaining Perl 5](http://news.perlfoundation.org/2013/05/grant-application-maintaining.html) 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:
- [July 2019](http://news.perlfoundation.org/2019/08/maintaining-the-perl-5-core-da-20.html)
- [June 2019](http://news.perlfoundation.org/2019/07/maintaining-the-perl-5-core-da-19.html)
- [May 2019](http://news.perlfoundation.org/2019/06/maintaining-the-perl-5-core-da-18.html)
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 August 16th 2019.
(Edit, 2018-08-18: Comments are now closed.)
The funds for this extension would come from the [Perl 5 Core Maintenance Fund](http://www.perlfoundation.org/perl_5_core_maintenance_fund).
