  • If you're not doing the work, why bother proposing that someone propose a grant proposal? Why not just say, "I'd like someone to take over this module, and additionally, I think it might make a decent grant proposal"?
    • Hi!

      If you're not doing the work, why bother proposing that someone propose a grant proposal? Why not just say, "I'd like someone to take over this module, and additionally, I think it might make a decent grant proposal"?

      I don't really understand why there's such a big difference between them. I was suggesting a good idea for a grant, and if someone is interested on hacking on the module even without the money, then I'll be fully supportive of him.

      Note that if no one volunteers (or receives a gr

        They are two distinct phases of the process. Who knows: maybe you'll find someone to do the work who does not want or need a grant (like almost every other project on the CPAN).

        But the entire purpose of the grant is to make other people involved in hacking my code. From my experience, such people can often give a new perspective on its development and come with many good ideas and code for further development.

    • Hi ciscott!

      The actual licence for the module is the MIT X11 licence. The 'bsd' indicator for the licence is part of the module's meta-data because it's the closest choice for it in Module::Build, and in the PAUSE categorisation.

      It does not make too much difference. The MIT X11 is considered part of the BSD family of licences, which includes licences that are completely non-copyleft as the original BSD, the modified BSD, MIT X11, the Apache licence, the Python licence, and so forth.
