Fixing Perl5 Core Bugs: Report for Month 6

Dave Mitchell writes:

As per my grant conditions, here is a report for the August period.

I was mostly busy with other stuff this month, so didn't get to put in many hours on the grant.

Over the first 25 weeks I have now averaged about 15 hours per week, less than the nominal 20. I have used up approx 73% of the hours allocated to the grant.

Report for period 2010/08/01 to 2010/08/31 inclusive
