July 5th, 2007 - A trio of Perl 6 microgrants

Three more Perl 6 Microgrants have been awarded!

Jesse Vincent of Best Practical writes:

Flavio Glock will receive a travel microgrant to help him attend YAPC::EU and evangelize kp6 and the Perl 6 in Perl 6 effort.

Steve Pritchard will receive a microgrant to complete the RPM packaging of Parrot and Pugs for Fedora, and to submit those packages for inclusion in the official Fedora distribution. Steve will be blogging his progress at http://blog.stevecoinc.com/

Juerd Waalboer is the maintainer of feather.perl6.nl, the primary host for Pugs development. Juerd will receive a microgrant to purchase upgraded hardware for feather.

Five Perl 6 microgrants remain to be awarded, so if you've got a good idea, we want to hear about it. You can find out how to submit a proposal here:
