+When I became acquainted with the notion of algorithmic languages I
+never challenged the then prevailing notion that the problems of
+language design and implementation were mostly a question of
+compromises: every new convenience for the user had to be paid for
+by the implementation, either in the form of increased trouble
+during translation, or during execution or during both. Well, we
+are most certainly not living in Heaven and I am not going to deny
+the possibility of a conflict between convenience and efficiency,
+but now I do protest when this conflict is presented as a complete
+summing up of the situation. I am of the opinion that is worth-while
+to investigate what extent the needs of Man and Machine go hand in
+hand and to see what techniques we can devise of the benefit of all
+of us. I trust that this investigation will bear fruits and if this
+talk made some of you share this fervent hope, it has achieved its aim.

-Fixed a failure to match properly.
+XXX
 
-An EXACTFish regnode has a finite length it can hold for the string
-being matched.  If that length is exceeded, a second node is used for
-the next segment of the string, for as many regnodes as are needed.
-Care has to be taken where to break the string, in order to deal
-multi-character folds in Unicode correctly. If we want to break a
-string at a place which could potentially be in the middle of a
-multi-character fold, we back off one (or more) characters, leaving
-a shorter EXACTFish regnode. This backing off mechanism contained
-an off-by-one error. L<[perl #133756]|https://rt.perl.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=133756>.

+platform specific bugs also go here.

-Failing to compile a format now aborts compilation.  Like other errors
-in sub-parses this could leave the parser in a strange state, possibly
-crashing perl if compilation continued.  L<[perl #132158]|https://rt.perl.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=132158>

-Perl 5.29.7 represents approximately 5 weeks of development since Perl
-5.29.6 and contains approximately 97,000 lines of changes across 350 files
-from 8 authors.
+=item *
+
+XXX Add anything here that we forgot to add, or were mistaken about, in
+the perldelta of a previous release.
 
-Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and release tools, there were
-approximately 27,000 lines of changes to 190 .pm, .t, .c and .h files.

-Perl continues to flourish into its fourth decade thanks to a vibrant
-community of users and developers. The following people are known to have
-contributed the improvements that became Perl 5.29.7:
+=head1 Obituary
 
-Abigail, Chris 'BinGOs' Williams, Eugen Konkov, Hauke D, James E Keenan,
-Karl Williamson, Tomasz Konojacki, Tony Cook.
+XXX If any significant core contributor or member of the CPAN community has
+died, add a short obituary here.
 
-The list above is almost certainly incomplete as it is automatically
-generated from version control history. In particular, it does not include
-the names of the (very much appreciated) contributors who reported issues to
-the Perl bug tracker.
+=head1 Acknowledgements
 
-Many of the changes included in this version originated in the CPAN modules
-included in Perl's core. We're grateful to the entire CPAN community for
-helping Perl to flourish.
+XXX Generate this with:
 
-For a more complete list of all of Perl's historical contributors, please
-see the F<AUTHORS> file in the Perl source distribution.
