P5CMF Needs some love

The Perl 5 Core Maintenance Fund was initially announce at YAPC::NA in 2011. Since then, it has been TPF's most successful grant program, awarding over $260,000 in grants for continued development and debugging of the Perl 5 core.

Unfortunately, most of the funds have now been depleted. Our four present grantees, Tony Cook, Paul Johnson, Dave Mitchell, and Jess Robinson are each running on allocations that have between 3 and 6 months remaining. Without further contributions to the fund, there will not be enough money to renew their grants.

If you value the work that these people are doing for the Perl 5 Core, please consider making a contribution to the P5CMF by visiting donate.perlfoundation.org soon.
