perl 5.24.0 blockers
Message ID:
Let's get back to reviewing blockers.  I'm looking forward to landing this

CURRENT  BLOCKER COUNT: 16 (but some are probably not blockers)

* remove

  We wanted to remove this from core.  We haven't yet.  We should do this

* BBC: Lexical-SealRequireHints

  This is a pretty big deal.  There are a bunch of downstream deps, as seen

* the pesky \N{...}

  This all is fixed, I think, except for taking Karl's final suggested action
  of deprecating empty \N{}.  Right?

* changes to infinite recursion in regex

  I believe this is no longer a blocker, as of
  401a80220e9b38609f41611345e25c9956fd7157.  Right?

* dtrace/-DDEBUGGING builds now fail on Solaris

  I have no intel on this.

* memory leaks in make test

  This isn't exactly a blocker, but Karl hopes we'll have a look at this before

* core dump in call_sv under threads

  This is a quite new one.  Not much info yet.  Not a regression from 5.22 (it
  seems) but from 5.20.  No bisect.

* BBC: Unicode::Unihan

  Recent report, bisected to a recent change.

* BBC: Scalar::List::Utils (!)

  Paul, looks like you have a PR to merge? :)

* BBC: Net::Yadis

  Looks like we can supply a patch to XML::XPath::Node::Element and/or
  Net::Yadis, or the idea for a patch.  I'll just add ot the Net::Yadis ticket
  a pointer back to the perl ticket.

* BBC: App::assh

  This no longer seems to be broken.  Agreed?

* BBC: IPC::Run on Win32

  No news in months.

* BBC: perl5i

  There's a patch.  I have not reviewed this.

* BBC: Test-MemoryGrowth

  Karl guesses this is a bug in the test.  Paul?

* BBC: App-JobLog

  More interesting to me: very recently, still a report that List::MoreUtils is
  broken in blead.  I thought that had been fixed...

  Not sure about this ticket yet.

* BBC: Algorithm-Permute

  Current thinking seems to be, "this module was too chummy with the guts and
  needs to be updated for new context stack, but is also probably
