Maintaining the Perl 5 Core: Report, Month 16

No Comments

At the start of the month I continued work on making the stderr of builds less noisy, and for blead to build, test, and be stderr-clean under ASan -fsanitize=undefined.

At the end of this work I raised around 26 RT and github tickets with fixes for cpan/ distributions; currently around 9 of these have been merged back into blead and a further 4 have been merged upstream but not yet released.

For the rest of the month I spent a bit of time on a few RT tickets and tried to keep with my p5p mailbox.
