Maintaining Perl 5: Grant Report for Month 5

No Comments

Tony Cook writes:

Approximately 30 tickets were worked on, and 10 patches were applied.

- perl #120384 This month I re-worked Data::Dumper's pure-perl and XS output of hash keys to be consistent with both each other, and with the Quotekeys configuration.

- perl #82948 Also on Data::Dumper, I modified the code that dumps qr// objects to output them as qr/original re/flags rather than the qr/(?^flags:original re)/ form that tends to expand each time it is serialized.
