So, this is kind of a funny story actually :)

Looking over my bash history I see that I ran the version update script
with $previous_version and $version_i_am_releasing instead
of $version_i_am_releasing and $version_after_the_one_i_am_releasing.

Which, of course, makes perfect sense as to why there were no changes when
I ran it, it seemed odd at the time, but I was still flustered from the day
of building and rebuilding perl, so I must have just forgotten to
investigate it after the dust settled.

This part has been fixed, tested and commited.

As for the updating of Module::CoreList, these steps I did take (prior to
the release), but I didn't then do it again after the release. I just
re-ran those scripts and commited the changes.

Again, I apologize for dropping the ball on this one, hopefully everything
is in good shape now.
