Which I calculate is 17.73 hours

This is a total of 261.32 hours, which is the limit of the grant.

I worked on approximately 14 tickets, and 6 patches were applied

[perl #75156] was mostly interesting because there had been a partial
fix in 2e6546ca, partial since it didn't update _update()'s return
value or the point of the module, the select() bit mask.  I produced a
patch with tests and a fix.

[perl #80058] is mostly interesting because my brief explanation of
the problem to the original poster was followed up by a flurry of
other responses.
