TPF awards Hague Grant to Jerry Gay, core 'Rakudo' Perl 6 team member, regarding S19 command line

The Perl Foundation is pleased to announce the second Hague Grant. It is being awarded to Jerry Gay, core Parrot hacker and 'Rakudo' Perl 6 implementation hacker. The details of Jerry's grant proposal are below. The work will be to define the S19 synopsis pertaining to command-line interaction with Perl 6, and to provide a Rakudo implementation of the synopsis.

Jesse Vincent, the project manager of the Perl 6 effort, has agreed to volunteer as the grant manager for Jerry's grant. Jesse will provide updates to TPF on Jerry's status and will judge acceptances of the various milestones and deliverables. Larry Wall has also agreed to act as the acceptor for the synopsis-definition deliverable of the grant.

We look forward to Jerry's success on this grant project and we are proud to be able to support him in this work.
