Note that I've recently reviewed most low-numbered bug reports up to about
#7400 (I tended to skip installation and platform-specific ones),
so the lowest-hanging fruit is more likely to be found elsewhere.

(I think I closed about 200 open reports: many of these had been fixed in
5.8.0 or bleedperl. I also closed a further ~150 stalled ones that were
mainly spam and a block of postings that leaked from p5p at one point.).

conundrums. But why bother when the Perl bug DB is available on-line
free-of-charge! ;-) ]

amount of sheep are tastefully arranged." Lady Croom - Arcadia
