in thread Perl 5 Optimizing Compiler, Part 15: RPerl v1.2 Kickstarter Now Live

Can you please explain to me how it is just fine for other Perl developers to repeatedly ask for $10K, $20K, even $25K at a time, and yet I am accused of selfishly building a "fat war chest" when I am able to raise a fraction of that from the good will of the Perl community, 32 months after starting work on RPerl?

Tony Cook, $20K

Dave Mitchell, $20K

Jonathan Worthington, $25K

Tony Cook, $20K Again

Jonathan Worthington, $10K

THE LIST GOES ON AND ON...

    I would say that the above three have delivered a great amount of value already.

    The list doesn't really go "on and on", but have you applied for a Perl Grant for RPerl?

    Personally, your campaign strikes me as very close to spamming, as you only repost a short blurb here and on blogs.perl.org (and I don't know where else), with some weirdo microbenchmarks that claim to make everything better. I didn't watch your video because I like to spend my video time on cat videos. If there is substantial information somewhere, it didn't catch my eye.

    Maybe the three people you mention above are just better at marketing than you?

    A reply falls below the community's threshold of quality. You may see it by logging in.

    That's a good point. Worthington hasn't delivered anything useful either.

    Perhaps the TPF should stop throwing good money after bad?

      If you have a problem with TPF's grant distribution, please take it up with them.

      Oh, and maybe stay on topic? Thanks.
