Perl 5.20.0 Blockers, 2014-04-28
Message ID:
Today is April 28, 2014. There are approximately 22 days until the expected
release of Perl 5.20.0.

We have four blockers in RT right now.  Three of them have patches that we'll
either apply or decide not to apply.  One of them needs a diagnosis.

I'm about 50 emails behind on p5p, right now, and there may be new blockers
that I have not yet seen.  Those should be brought up right now, as we're
quickly getting toward release candidates.

A summary of our blockers follows.

1.  IO::Socket getsockopt subroutine on AIX

    It looks like AIX 7.3 doesn't need the patch and AIX 5 doesn't benefit from
    the patch.  Do we still want this patch?  The OP was writing about AIX 7.1.

    Alternately:  is there a reason *not* to apply the patch?  It looks like
    nobody objects to the patch, and it isn't causing extra failures, but the
    OP reports that it fixes AIX 7.1.  The only reason to not apply seems like
    "couldn't get second +1 from someone with that exact platform."  I lean
    toward applying.

2.  VC6 has missing ')'s on macro expansion, cBOOL and U8, Unicode.xs

    We're sort of waiting on Dan to make a release here.  In the meantime,
    Steve Hay was sent a patch that could be applied.

    Steve, can you please apply that patch for now?

3.  printfing after freeing

    Tony says he'll apply this patch any day now.

4.  Bleadperl breaks MLEHMANN/AnyEvent-7.07.tar.gz on Windows

    No diagnosis yet.  AnyEvent is not something we really want to have broken
    on release.
