DAVEM TPF grant#2 report #27
Message ID:
Another sparse week, what with easter and stuff.

Mostly spent fixing miscellaneious smoke issues, including
    ExtUtils-Install/t/Install.t failing some tests I'd introduced:
        I was using -w to check that a created file wasn't writeable,
        which failed when running as root. So it uses stat() instead now.
        this was producing noisy output under some shells

I also revisited the various threads and tickets about documenting XS
stuff related to COW etc better, but didn't get as far as actually
contributing :-(

No man treats a motor car as foolishly as he treats another human being.
When the car will not go, he does not attribute its annoying behaviour to
sin, he does not say, You are a wicked motorcar, and I shall not give you
any more petrol until you go. He attempts to find out what is wrong and
set it right.
