  • They do make enough from CD sales, donations, for some time a grant from the US DoD, etc to pay for Theo to work full time, and to give other hackers some resources to work with. It is amazing how much it helps having full time employees to do the boring grunt work of, for instance, regular releases.

    • While not employing anyone full time, Perl is not without resources. Grants are given out all the time to do things that wouldn't normally get done. Besides the small development grants, there's Richard Dice's new grant to do organizational work for TPF (and it's my understanding that he's working full time on this) and then Dave Mitchell's grant to release 5.10.1.

      But money is not enough to make things work well. We need process changes.
