Dave Mitchell has requested an extension of $20,000 for his Maintaining Perl 5 grant. This will allow him to dedicate another 333 hours to this work. During this grant he sent regular reports to the p5p mailing list as well as providing monthly summary reports that have been published on this site, the most recent of which are linked below:

Before we make a decision on this extension, we would like to have a period of community consultation. Please leave feedback in the comments field below by July 10th 2018.

The funds for this extension would come from the Perl 5 Core Maintenance Fund.

This is a monthly report by Dave Mitchell on his grant under Perl 5 Core Maintenance Fund. We thank the TPF sponsors to make this grant possible.

I spent the last month mainly working on:
* blocking issues for the 5.28.0 release.
* BBC tickets
* ASAN-related tickets
