Fedora 9 and 5.10.0
Message ID:
Today, perl 5.10.0 went into Fedora rawhide, which will become Fedora 9.

A few additional changes were committed with this release:

- Fedora is now tracking all of its patches in patchlevel.h
- The "sitedir" and "sitearch" directories are now located
under /usr/local, to make it very clear that files installed by CPAN did
not come from Fedora packages (they still work fine).

We got a tremendous amount of help from the perl 5 porters community,
especially Andy Armstrong, Nicholas Clark, and Rafael Garcia-Suarez.
Without your help, we would not have been able to meet the Fedora

The Fedora 9 beta release is scheduled for March 20, and the final F-9
release is scheduled for April 29, 2008.

Thanks again for all of your help,
