Vienna.pm donates $10.000 for Perl 5 Core Maintenance

The Perl 5 Core Maintenance Fund aims to raise $25.000 to to pay for Nicholas Clark and Dave Mitchell to work for 3 months on the Perl 5 core, fixing bugs and making other improvements.

Vienna.pm decided to set aside $10.000 as "match funding" - ie for every $1 that someone else donates, Vienna.pm donate $1, until $10,000 + $10,000 is raised, and only 20% remains to reach the target. The hope is that "match funding" will encourage people to donate a bit more themselves than a simple unconditional donation.
