Perl 5 Bug Summary

[[ 
    The Perl5 Bug Summary is back!  Apologies for it being missing,
    but round tuits seem to keep rolling under my couch, which makes
    them much harder to find.

    Also, the perlbug authentication issues should be fixed.

    New on the web version of the overview are some pretty pie
    graphs.  (Thanks Imager::Graph::Pie)

    We were going to try and have a Holiday Bugathon, but too many of
    the potential organizers were swamped.  We may try again before
    5.8.4... but don't let that stop you from perusing the database
    and finding issues that can be closed!

    Also, coming soon.. instructions on how you can use the _Command
    Line_ interface to RT with perlbug.
