TPF Grant July 2010 report
Message ID:
As per my grant conditions, here is a report for the July period.
This month was mainly spent on providing a general fix for the weak
backreferences in stashes globs and CVs. This means that in general
there are likely to be less crashes when doing odd things with stashes and

Over the first 21 weeks I have now averaged about 17 hours per week,
slightly less than the nominal 20. I have used up approx 70% of the hours
allocated to the grant.

Report for period 2010/07/01 to 2010/07/31 inclusive
