Tony Cook has requested an extension of $20,000 for his "Maintaining Perl 5 Grant":http://news.perlfoundation.org/2013/05/grant-application-maintaining.html. This grant has been running successfully since July 2013. If this extension is granted it would allow Tony to devote another 400 hours to the project. The funds for this extension would come from the "Perl 5 Core Maintenance Fund":http://www.perlfoundation.org/perl_5_core_maintenance_fund.
As well as posting reports on the p5p mailing list Tony provides detailed monthly reports, the most recent of which can be found in the following blog posts:
bq. "May 2016":http://news.perlfoundation.org/2016/07/maintaining-perl-5-grant-repor-30.html
Before we make a decision on this extension we would like to have a period of community consultation for seven days. Please leave feedback in the comments or, if you prefer, email your comments to karen at perlfoundation.org.
