Fixing Perl5 Core Bugs: Report for Month 24

Dave Mitchell writes:

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

I spent a couple of days rebasing my davem/re_eval branch to incorporate recent changes to blead, but apart from that didn't do anything, due to a mixture of illness, being stuck, and doing other things.

The good news is that the illness and stuck-ness are both ended, so (although outside of the scope of the February report), I have started work on the re-eval stuff again.

Over the last month I have averaged 3 hours per week.

As of 2012/02/29: since the beginning of the grant:

103.4 weeks
1065.8 total hours
10.3 average hours per week

There are now 234 hours left on the grant.

Report for period 2012/02/01 to 2012/02/29 inclusive
