Fixing Perl5 Core Bugs: Report for Month 18

Dave Mitchell writes:

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

Spent it mainly working on fixing the design flaws in re_evals (i.e. /(?{...})/ ). I now have it mostly fixed for the literal and non-qr case, in the branch davem/re_eval

Over the last month I have averaged 14 hours per week.

As of 2011/08/31: since the beginning of the grant:

77.4 weeks
864.2 total hours
11.2 average hours per week

There are 36 hours left on the grant.
