Definition of the score is found in 3.2 of the [rules](http://www.perlfoundation.org/rules_of_operation).
Women in Technology, Cameroon: The Committee decided not to vote on this grant proposal as we requested more information from the proposer.
Test::Simple + Test::Stream stabilization and merge into perl-blead: We will approve and fund this grant. This work belongs to one of the areas where the community money is well spent. The community feedback as well as the Committee members' feedback were both positive. Alberto Simões is appointed as the grant manager.
Test::Stream Manual: We will approve it but will not fund it in this round. That is, we will review the same proposal in the next round and re-evaluate it with the remaining fund we have according to the [rules](http://www.perlfoundation.org/rules_of_operation). Given there is a stabilization grant (above), we prefer to see that completed before time/money is spent on documentation.
RPerl Alioth Benchmarks, Part 2: We will approve it but will not fund it in this round. According to the rules 1.2, this grant will not be considered further. We understand Will's passion for RPerl and the documentation grant is making progress, but we would like to see RPerl used/tested by more people before we allocate more money so a good part of the community is benefited by the grant.
### Next round
The next round is in January. You can [submit proposals now](http://www.perlfoundation.org/how_to_write_a_proposal). If you want to help funding, one of the options is [Amazon Smile](http://news.perlfoundation.org/2014/03/tpf-is-now-participating-on-am.html).
