[PATCH pod/perlhack.pod] Updated pumpking information.
Message ID:

I've updated some pumpking information. The document also mentions
Andy Dougherty and Jarkko Hietaniemi as Configure pumpkings. Is that
still current? Should Merijn be mentioned as well?

 responsible for gathering patches, deciding on a patch-by-patch
 feature-by-feature basis what will and will not go into the release.
 For instance, Gurusamy Sarathy was the pumpking for the 5.6 release of
-Perl, and Jarkko Hietaniemi is the pumpking for the 5.8 release, and
-Hugo van der Sanden will be the pumpking for the 5.10 release.
+Perl (up to the 5.6.1 release); Rafael Garcia-Suarez is pumpking for 5.6.2.
+Jarkko Hietaniemi was the pumpking for the 5.8.0 and 5.8.1 releases, while
+Nicholas Clark is the pumpking for 5.8.2 and further 5.8 releases.
+Hugo van der Sanden is the pumpking for the 5.10 release. After the release
+of 5.6, Perl started using odd minor numbers for development releases,
+and even minor numbers for stable releases. Hence, Jarkko Hietaniemi
+was pumpking for the releases in the 5.7 series, and Hugo van der Sanden
+is also pumpking for the 5.9 series.
 In addition, various people are pumpkings for different things.  For
 instance, Andy Dougherty and Jarkko Hietaniemi share the I<Configure> Perl Programming lists via nntp and http.
