Hurrah!  +1  While not a former pumpking, I think the work you've done
to get 5.11.X moving demonstrates you have what it takes.

I can already tell you that the CPAN Meta Spec 2.0 design process is
wrapping up around then and there will be major changes to the
toolchain modules to support it probably in the month of December.
You'll need to decide if you want to get those changes (or some of
them) into Version 12 or let them slip to 14.  No decision needed now,
but I want to put in a placeholder for discussions later.
