Fixing Perl5 Core Bugs: Report for Month 13

Dave Mitchell writes:

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

I concentrated on bugs that were 5.14 blockers, and also spent a fair amount of time working to reduce smoke failures, which isn't being charged to the grant, as that work wasn't done against RT tickets.

Over the last month I have averaged 5 hours per week. As of 2011/03/31: since the beginning of the grant:

56.0 weeks
661.7 total hours
11.8 average hours per week

There are 238 hours left on the grant.

Report for period 2011/03/01 to 2011/03/31 inclusive

7:35 diagnosing bugs
13:25 fixing bugs
1:25 reviewing other people's bug fixes
