Hello all,

Ricardo has persuaded me to do some work on getting 5.14.3 out of the
door, so I've made a start on maint-5.14, taking his work and sorting
out some outstanding details.

There are a few approved changes in cherrymaint which haven't been
included yet; I've created tracking RT tickets for them:

#114840  maint-5.14: 7402016 Don't leak memory when accessing named captures that didn't match
#114842  maint-5.14: f0e9f18 Restore the package name to overload errors; fix crash
#114844  maint-5.14: be88a5c $tainted ~~ [...] failing
#114846  maint-5.14: 33d4ef8 Call get-magic once for CV-to-GV assignment
#114848  maint-5.14: d5c6c69 Fix a Storable test to work in 5.8.9-

and the master tracking ticket for 5.14.3 is #114730.

As 5.14.3 is already quite overdue, I will not be pushing heavily for
additional fixes to be included in it, but I may entertain emails pointing
me at a ready-to-apply fix that isn't already in maint-5.14, or telling
me to wait (days not weeks) for backporting work. I intend to release the
first RC this month.

In the meantime, I will be peering at the smokers to make sure that there
aren't test failure regressions since v5.14.2, and generally getting to
grips with the release engineering side of things.

Thanks,
Dominic.
