As brian mentioned, the NLNet grant is what's driving the Parrot work.
AFAIK, there haven't been any Parrot-related grants for a long time
besides that one and the MoFo/TPF grant to Patrick.
To see other grants given go here - http://www.perlfoundation.org/grants
Most of them are Perl 5 related. There are also the micogrants
(http://www.perlfoundation.org/microgrants) which are all Perl 6 focused,
but only one is Parrot-specific.
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?
TPF definitely does want to sponsor more on Perl 5.
I think this is mostly TPF's communications problem. People don't know
about the grants, or don't know what is likely to be accepted, don't know
when to apply, etc.
Your guide to all that's veg. My book blog
