Maintaining the Perl 5 Core (Dave Mitchell): Grant Report for March 2018

This is a monthly report by Dave Mitchell on his grant under Perl 5 Core Maintenance Fund. We thank the TPF sponsors to make this grant possible.

I spent the last month mainly doing two things:

1) fixing up so that running the whole perl test suite through
Deparse, i.e.
    ./TEST -deparse
doesn't have any new failures.

2) going through the list of broken-in-blead top-1000 CPAN distributions
to confirm which now worked etc.

     13:39 fix up TEST -deparse
      6:17 investigate BBC blockers
      0:40 process p5p mailbox
     20:36 TOTAL (HH::MM)

 232.9 weeks
3030.9 total hours
  13.0 average hours per week

There are 102 hours left on the grant
