perl v5.24.0 blockers, Apr 1 edition
Message ID:
No blockers, let's ship it!  Ha ha, it's April 1st, remember?  Ugh.


PREVIOUS BLOCKER COUNT: 6 (but really 5 or maybe 4)

## blocking

* BBC perl5i (but really: warnings for stat(@arr)

  Tony has a smoke branch for adding a warning for stat(@arr).  I hope we'll
  merge it RSN.  Then we're done.

* charset.t and subst.t on Solaris with use64bitall

  I've asked Yves to have a look at this.  Anybody else who wants to look,
  though, is welcome and encouraged!

* Coredump in call_sv under threads

  Maybe I'm misreading the discussion at
  but it sounds to me like:

  "We have two options on how to proceed.  One is disruptive but correct.  One
  is less disruptive but might not really be much of a fix."

  Are we better off, at this point, leaving it broken in v5.24, in a way
  consistent with the way it's broken in v5.22, so that we can only introduce
  new breakage in v5.26, with the benefit of really addressing the problem?
  That feels like my kind of answer.  But maybe I misunderstand the discussion,
  as I said.

## not blocking

* SIGFPE in S_make_trie

  Not really blocking, just hoping for a comment or test, too.

* memory leaks doing 'make test'

  What we're hoping for, here, is some extra eyes.  I'll remove this ticket
  from the blockers list (and maybe move it to v5.25.1 ticket) soon.  But have
  a look anyway!
