Re: Request for Perl 5.22.1 voting
Message ID:
Thanks to those who have voted so far.

I have dropped a couple of cherry-pick candidates in the course of
doing a dummy run. All of the candidates now remaining cherry-pick
cleanly or with negligible conflict, and all tests pass with them all

So please can I ask for more votes to be cast?

I might delay rolling out an RC1 until just after the next blead
release on 20th to avoid hassle with coordinating the Module-CoreList
updates between them, but it would be great to be in a position to
make RC1 as soon as that blead release is out of the way.
