Message ID:
The output Yaroslav posted worked well for me.  For those of you who 
didn't translate it, we are now at 96.17% pass rate of those tests done. 
  All of cpan is skipped, as well as a couple of others that we started 
skipping early on, just to make progress.  It's about, but not quite, 
time to try those.

The remaining current failures are a mixture of test problems, plus real 
failures of mostly edge cases.  As I've said earlier, there is one 
problem that I had been deferring fixing, and that is with 
pack("U",...).   I have now pushed a new version from the latest blead 
for Yaroslav to try, which attempts to fix that, and a few of the other 
  remaining test failures. Perl Programming lists via nntp and http.
