Thanks a lot to Rik and all other Perl 5 contributors for this release! A
special thanks to Rik for being such a great Pumpking in the past.

This release of Perl 5 somewhat follows my birthday, which was on 5 May, and
24 happens to be my lucky number, so hopefully it will be a lucky release.
Unfortunately, it's too late to be included in the next version of Mageia Linux
- Mageia v6 - which will ship only with perl-5.22.x , but hopefully we can
upgrade the perl there to the latest version after the release.
