bleed and CPAN dual-life module synchronisation
Message ID:
Just a heads up to to the world at large and to dual-life module owners in
particular, that whatever happens to be merge-able(*) from bleed to
maint-5.10.x in the next couple of weeks or so is what is quite likely to
end up in 5.10.1-RC1.

So now would be a good time for

a) dual-life module authors to merge in bleed-specific hacks (ie all the
1.23_01 module variants, of which there are a distressing number, plus
unnumbered hacks), then push out a clean release which can be sucked back
into bleed, so that bleed and CPAN are in sync;

b) generally for people suck in stuff from CPAN where its newer than bleed

I'll no doubt be hassling individuals in due course too!

(*) bearing in mind that where possible, maint releases don't ship modules
with hacks that aren't already on CPAN.

In my day, we used to edit the inodes by hand.  With magnets.
