Jonathan is doing an excellent job, as usual. :o)

This is a no-brainer right? He's doing a great job!


This is a no-brainer. Jonathan is the right person for this job.


Jonathan is making consistent, positive progress - please continue his funding.

Work so far is impressive, and Christmas is close.

Jonathan ++

+1 really superious person with great skills and knowledge.

Jonathan is doing excellent work, making real progress, solving a lot of issues, implementing many to-be-implemented items, and cooperating with and motiving many others in the community.
Therefore: extension please.

Yes please, extend the grant for Jonathan who is doing a great job.

Blinking good

The velocity has remained as impressive as it has all year largely because Jonathan is not only enormously productive but also because his work and constant input has provided and anchor that has enabled everyone else involved to work with confidence.

If there was an unlimited supply of cash I'd go with keeping him forever :)

+1 I regularly see Jonathan make commits and fix important issues. I believe they deserve the grant extension.

+1 without question.

(Look at that time estimate. Guy's planning on pulling 11-hour days from now until Christmas. Let's not only fund him; let's name the Perl 6 Developers Hall of Fame after him.)

Please continue funding Jonathan++!

He has a proven record of consistently and continuously delivering his grant goals, while also stimulating others (inside and outside the community) to contribute as well. I expect this time to be no different.

+1 Jonathan is doing a super bang-up job. Keep it up.

In addition to his coding Jonathan also talks and writes about his work and Perl 6 in general.
Any money spent in funding his work is money spent well.


Thank Jonathan for the hard work.

Jnthn has made original, lasting, and team contributions to a number of important topics in perl6. His slides and articles are educational and engaging. Heartily recommend giving him the grant extension. Let's spread christmas.perl6 cheer all around :-)

+1 keep the momentum up

Jonathan is doing amazing work.

Yes to this!! I don't know if there would be a christmas release w/o jnthn++ and his hard work.

+1, also: can other people simply contribute a few hours worth of money? if so: how?

+1 Yes, please extend his grant.

+1 from me, too. Not only does jnthn do great work, but his guidance has allowed me to continue contributing little bits and pieces over the last years :)

Robert Lemmen: There is a "Make a donation" link at the bottom of the page. Follow that, then select "Perl 6 Development". Any support there will be greatly appreciated!

Oh, if this wasn't clear yet: A big fat +1 for extension! :-)

Yes the grant should be extended. He has done a great job overall.
