Maintaining the Perl 5 Core (Dave Mitchell): Grant Report for August 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 didn't spend all that many hours during August on perl work.

I spent most of my time looking at a bug related to restoring of captures
within regex repeats. During the course of that, I took the opportunity to
simplify and cleanup some of the code in S_regmatch() which deals with
captures, and in particular, make it consistently use macros which produce
debugging output when opening or closing or restoring capture indices.
