DAVEM TPF Grant March 2013 report

This month I mainly worked on one of the 5.18 blocker tickets; in this
case how

    overload::constant qr => sub { ...}

interacts with "constant" regexes such as qr/foo/ and qr/foo(?{bar})/
if the sub replaces constant strings like "foo" with an overloaded object.
It turns out this was something I hadn't anticipated in my re_eval
reworking, and my code didn't handle it at all well. I'm now about 3/4 the
way to fixing it.

Over the last month I have averaged 6.5 hours per week

As of 2013/03/31: since the beginning of the grant:

 160.0 weeks
1618.8 total hours
  10.1 average hours per week

There are 82 hours left on the grant.
