Which I calculate is 20.08 hours.

Approximately 9 tickets were worked on, and 2 patches were applied

This week I dealt with the breakage from [perl #92446], which allowed
for customization of the backtraces from Carp.

For most of the failures, the new changes were insufficiently paranoid
with respect to recursion, in some cases rescursing infinitely because
can() was croaking or otherwise entering format_arg().

With this fixed, the only problem was a race in Object-Lazy where it
would log a message about a lazily created message before marking the
object as created.  This was reported as [rt.cpan.org 87867] and has
since been fixed.

I also re-worked two patches from Peter John Acklam for Math-BigInt,
in the first case [perl #85296] adjusting the patch so it would apply
on top of the changes in bleadperl, and in the second case [perl
#86686] adjusting the patch to match various ticket comments.

I wrote the first tests for find2perl as part of applying the fairly
brief patch in [perl #113054], which should hopefully make it simpler
to add new tests in the future.
