  • Hey, I've got stuff I could probably work on.

    I could hack on Vanilla/Strawberry, or PITA, or various other things, for a month or two I'm sure.

    But as you said, the grants don't provide enough to replace $work (even close), but further I've already gotten two grants from TPF, and I worry about issues of favoritism/cronyism or "hogging" the money.

    But I don't see how this even remotely leaves TPF in a situation of having "too much money".

    I would be overjoyed if TPF had Mozilla's 50m river of hold and could hire 50 or 100 full time P5P/CPAN/Parrot/P6 people.

      By "too much money" I simply mean that TPF has been increasing it's net bank balance over the last few fiscal years (according to its filings with the IRS [perlfoundation.org]).

      I don't mean they have too much, as in more it should, or more than it deserves, simply that it is taking in more money than it spends, but as a nonprofit it should aim towards breaking even, which for a while will mean spending down some of its outstanding balance.

      Me too! OTOH, it did have nearly $100k in the bank as of its FY2006 filing.
