Sorry to catch you unawares. I was assuming that everyone who might need
to know was either reading p5p, or Rafael's summaries.

I also tried to sync everything on CPAN, although I think the last sync
was about a week before release.

I fear I might be fairly lazy when it comes to whipping. I'll probably
mail p5p mid December to solicit the last minute patching frenzy.

I'd be quite happy to pull Encode from CPAN (in via blead) so that
the version shipped in the core got some testing from users prior to
5.8.3 RC1. That seems better than finding problems in the RC1 and then
rushing to fix them. My approach once I'm into RCs is more likely to back
out troublesome things than attempt to fix them. There will be another
5.8.x along soon.
