RC5 is out
Message ID:
	No matter what she did with her hair it took about
	three minutes for it to tangle itself up again,
	like a garden hosepipe in a shed [Footnote: Which,
	no matter how carefully coiled, will always uncoil
	overnight and tie the lawnmower to the bicycles].
	-- Terry Pratchett, "Lords and Ladies"

(or rsync -avz --delete perl-5.8.x)

(the rsync will give you RC5 plus few doc tweaks, and the patchlevel.h
is back to MAINTXXXX, not RC5), or unsurprisingly (please prefer this
link outside p5p):


Please test. announcement will come later.
