That's why I raised the debate on whom to aid.
I've seen that Daniel Ruoso applied for a grant for his smop project,
basically a virtual machine and fast backend for kp6, and perhaps other
TPF decided not to invest into yet another implementation.
So I learn that they do have money, and don't seem to finde worthy targets
to spend it.
On the other hand there are applications that I do consider worthwhile.
That's what made me come to the conclusion that it's really "The Parrot
But from chromatic's response I learned that there is good way to support
parrot - but financing him for month.
So where is the problem? Why doesn't the money flow one way or another?
Does TPF want to sponsor more Perl 5 related development? Or was that
offer, $5k for 1 month full time hacking, not known before?
