This year, we would instead like to encourage you to go out and explore Orlando.  We will still be having a social at 8 pm with desserts and drinks.  After exploring the city around the hotel, make your way back to say hello to friends from near and far.  We feel that this format is much more conducive to socialization than the previous banquets tended to be, and hope everyone enjoys the change.</span></p>

By sponsoring TPF, not only do you get recognition for your support of YAPC::NA, but you are also recognized as a sponsor of our regional Perl Workshops, our Outreach Program for Women, beginner training initiatives, and our grants programs for an entire year. It really is the way to get the most value for your sponsorship money.    Find out more by visiting </span><a href="https://donate.perlfoundation.org" style="text-decoration: none;"><span style="font-size: 14.666666666666666px; font-family: Arial; color: #1155cc; background-color: transparent; font-weight: 400; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; text-decoration: underline; vertical-align: baseline;">https://donate.perlfoundation.org</span></a><span style="font-size: 14.666666666666666px; font-family: Arial; color: #000000; background-color: transparent; font-weight: 400; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; text-decoration: none; vertical-align: baseline;"> or by contacting </span><a href="mailto:[email protected]" style="text-decoration: none;"><span style="font-size: 14.666666666666666px; font-family: Arial; color: #1155cc; background-color: transparent; font-weight: 400; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; text-decoration: underline; vertical-align: baseline;">[email protected]</span></a><span style="font-size: 14.666666666666666px; font-family: Arial; color: #000000; background-color: transparent; font-weight: 400; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; text-decoration: none; vertical-align: baseline;">.</span></p>

  714.        <![CDATA[<p>This is a completion report for the Test-Simple + Test-Stream grant, by Chad Granum.
  715. The Grants Committee will vote on its completion and payment.  If you have feedback or question on its completion, please comment here.</p>

  717. <h1>Test-Simple + Test-Stream (now Test2) grant complete</h1>
  718.  
  719. <p>This is a completion report for the Test-Simple + Test-Stream grant.</p>
  720.  
  721. <h1>Note on name change and split</h1>
  722.  
  723. <p>During the course of the grant the Test-Stream project was renamed to Test2.
  724. Several modules from Test-Stream were broken out into other distributions.  The
  725. name change and split was a decision made with help of Ricardo Signes and other
  726. members of the perl community.</p>
  727.  
  728. <p>For the remainder of this document I will use the Test2 name for simplicity.</p>
  729.  
  730. <h1>Deliverables</h1>
  731.  
  732. <ul>
  733. <li><p>Completion of the punch-list set by the perl-qa group in Berlin 2015</p>
  734.  
  735. <p>This list was a blocker for releasing Test2. Test2 has now been released.
  736. Ricardo Signes acted as a middle-man to help insure that the stakeholders
  737. requirements were met.</p></li>
  738. <li><p>A release of Test2 without the 'experimental' warnings</p>
  739.  
  740. <p><a href="https://metacpan.org/release/EXODIST/Test-Simple-1.302015">https://metacpan.org/release/EXODIST/Test-Simple-1.302015</a> is released on
  741. cpan, it includes Test2 and is marked as stable.</p>
  742.  
  743. <p>Other distributions originally part of Test-Stream have also had the
  744. experimental warning removed
  745. <a href="https://metacpan.org/release/EXODIST/Test2-Suite-0.000030">https://metacpan.org/release/EXODIST/Test2-Suite-0.000030</a></p></li>
  746. <li><p>Test2 in bleadperl</p>
  747.  
  748. <p>The core distribution, Test2, is now part of the Test-Simple distribution,
  749. which is core. In addition I supplied a patch to blead in
  750. <a href="https://rt.perl.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=128113">https://rt.perl.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=128113</a> which is now pending
  751. release.</p></li>
  752. <li><p>A non-dev release of Test-Simple that uses Test2 under the hood</p>
  753.  
  754. <p><a href="https://metacpan.org/release/EXODIST/Test-Simple-1.302015">https://metacpan.org/release/EXODIST/Test-Simple-1.302015</a> not only includes
  755. Test2, but the Test::Builder module use Test2 under the hood.</p></li>
  756. </ul>
  757.  
  758. <h1>Completeness Criteria</h1>
  759.  
  760. <ul>
  761. <li><p>Test2 and the updated Test-Simple as stable on cpan</p>
  762.  
  763. <p>This is done. <a href="https://metacpan.org/release/EXODIST/Test-Simple-1.302015">https://metacpan.org/release/EXODIST/Test-Simple-1.302015</a></p></li>
  764. <li><p>Test2 and the updated Test-Simple in a stable perl release</p>
  765.  
  766. <p>The patch has been supplied, and merged into blead. Unfortunately the next
  767. scheduled stable perl release is a year away. I have no control over the perl
  768. release schedule.</p>
  769.  
  770. <p>My original grant proposal should have listed this item as 'in blead perl'
  771. unfortunately I did not notice the mistake until now.</p></li>
  772. <li><p>Lack of angry hordes storming my house for breaking their tests</p>
  773.  
  774. <p>I am still here, my house is still here. There was some breakage, but it was
  775. kept to a minimum. Breakage is documented here:
  776. <a href="https://metacpan.org/pod/distribution/Test-Simple/lib/Test2/Transition.pod">https://metacpan.org/pod/distribution/Test-Simple/lib/Test2/Transition.pod</a></p></li>
