About the Grants Committee
As some of you probably noticed, from my post in TPF blog, there were no grant proposals in the last six months. I am not sure how to interpret this lack of interest in grants. But there are some ideas that come to my head:
- People do not need money :-)
- People prefer to do things by themselves, without any schedule or pressure;
- Nobody uses Perl anymore
- Everything Perl needs is already on CPAN
- The maximum amount of a grant ($3000) it not paying anything
I am not sure if there are other reasons. But I would love to hear comments (constructive comments, please) about this issue.
I must say that the less grants proposals we receive, the less I need to work. But I volunteered, and it would make me happy to have interesting projects running.
