1. Do you know if there is someone who is the designated "Perl 5 maintainer" for DragonflyBSD?

2. Is there someone who is capable of smoke-testing Perl 5 blead on this OS, and/or is capable of running a CPANtesters operation for DragonflyBSD?

I ask these questions because any patch to the hints file will need to be confirmed as not causing harm.

We know that we (Perl 5 Porters) are already not doing a great job on testing the long established BSDs (Free, Open, Net), but at least in two of those three cases we know whom to call.

Any leads you can provide would be appreciated.  Thank you very much.
