I am pleased to announce that The Perl Foundation (TPF) has accepted Tony Cook's grant application for "Maintaining Perl 5":http://news.perlfoundation.org/2013/05/grant-application-maintaining.html. As always the application was considered after a public consultation and feedback period. I would like to thank everyone
who took the time to view, assess, and provide feedback on the application.
This grant was awarded from money previously raised for the "Perl 5 Core Maintenance Fund":http://www.perlfoundation.org/perl_5_core_maintenance_fund, an initiative maintained by TPF to manage, evolve, and support work on the Perl 5 core.
This fund relies entirely on the generosity of our sponsors, community donations, and internal fundraising. Without these funds we would not be able to support this important work. If you would like to contribute to this fund, or know of an individual or organisation who would like to contribute then please direct them to our "donation page":https://secure.donor.com/pf012/give. Donations of any size are gratefully accepted and are a valuable addition.
