Fixing Perl5 Core Bugs: Report for Month 12

Dave Mitchell writes:

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

Spent most of the month fixing many taint issues associated with s///, which I discovered as a side-effect of looking into the \p{$tainted} issue.

Over the last month I have averaged 13 hours per week. Over the 50 weeks of the grant (to 27/Feb/11), I have done 639 hours, averaging 12.8 hours per week. There are 261 hours left on the grant.

Report for period 2011/02/01 to 2011/02/28 inclusive
