Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.

Grant Vote Status

[ #33510 ]

Grant votes were somewhat delayed. This is mostly my fault since I did a terrible job juggling my time while I moved into my new house in London. Then RT went down for a while, so when I tried starting the votes, I couldn't. Oops.

Since we've started being more public about the "mandatory grant amount" issue, the problem has virtually gone away, so it's all the more irksome when someone replying to the call for proposals ignores that. However, as I mentioned, it appears that some internals work we've done on the Web site wiped out a link we had, so I can hardly blame them. I'm simply going to make this even more prominent in the future.

      The reason this is a can of worms is simple: how mu
