Concerning commit 721b267 Win32 killpg
Message ID:
The perldelta for this has several spelling errors.  Also I, a native 
English speaker, cannot understand what it is trying to say:

On a Perl built without psuedo-fork (psuedo-fork builds were not affected by
this bug), probably since prcess tree kill feature was implemented on Win32,
killing a process tree with L<perlfunc/kill> and a negative signal, resulted
in kill inverting the returned value.  This ment successfully killing
1 process tree PID returned 0, and also passing 2 invalid PID, returned 2.
This has been corrected so the documented behavior for return values for 
executes.  [perl #121230]
