perl v5.24.0 blockers, March 29 edition
Message ID:
PREVIOUS BLOCKER COUNT: 8 (but really more like 7)
CURRENT  BLOCKER COUNT: 6 (but really 5 or maybe 4)

* infinite recursion, or not, in regex

  It's back on the blocker list!  I thought this was fixed by restoring the old
  behavior.  It may not be ideal, but I don't think it is a regression,
  correct?  At this phase in the release cycle, I'd rather stick with the bug
  we have than the new behavior that is (a) controversial and (b) not
  thoroughly tested.

  What is the argument to keep this on the blockers list?

* SIGFPE integer divide by zero in S_make_trie

  Not a regression from v5.22.  We'd like to get Yves to look at this though,
  becaused fixed bugs are better than unfixed bugs.

* behavior of CORE::stat(@array)

  We agree that the bug is downstream, but a question about adding a warning is

* Coredump in call_sv under threads

  On Mar 22, Karl said more discussion was needed about how to proceed.  I
  don't see any discussion on the ticket since then, but there is a proposed

  Do we have a next step beyond "apply patch"?

* test failures on Solarus under -Duse64bilall

  These appear to come from ba6840fbf2fdde3e7f1bda1a26f46c901f36d5ec, the
  commit related to infinite recursion in regex, above.  So, when I said that
  work was reverted, I guess I mean only that part of it was reworked.  So,
  this seems like an ongoing problem.

* memory leaks in 'make test'

  Not really blocking, just a cry for more eyes to look at the problem.
