Ok, this may be the wrong section in the wrong forum and after all it is none of my business anyway, but maybe I get an answer nevertheless for this question:
Is there any institution that funds Larry Wall's effort to develop Perl 6?
The background to this question is that many years ago I read somewhere the Larry was on O'Reilly's payroll and when I later read that he was no longer with O'Reilly I had assumed that he would then be funded by some other company or institution (in particular I held the believe that his Perl 6 efforts would be funded by grants from the Perl Foundation - I can't remember anymore how I came to believe that).
Then on this year's YAPC someone told me that this was not the case, which left me wondering...
btw: I really ask out of pure curiosity (simply ignore it if you think it is not appropriate), I do not want to imply anything with this question and I know that Perl 6 is developed by many people besides Larry.
