2012 Year End Report
I think this is the first time I see a detailed annual report from The Perl Foundation. It is much needed. Thank you Dan Wright!. (And to be true to my never satisfied self, I'd like to see an even more detailed report regarding the sources of money and the actual spending. Which grant received how much etc.) ~ Gabor
