Please forgive my mistakes. First RC and this was a bit frazzling. I
went through this with Yves and thought I understood it. Then received
much help today from Aaron and BinGOs, and yet, still made a few mistakes.

Also, there's a typo that says 5.24.1, noted on IRC. This is due to the
script used for the commit diff which used 5.24.1. I fixed one
occurrence, but missed the other.

Also also, there's a mistake that I hadn't removed a perldelta entry
related to 5.25.2. Also noted on IRC. Should have been removed. I
removed some entries of 5.25.x, but missed that one.

Also also also, a small problem on blead I'm working now on fixing, also
from IRC.

So, all in all, a few mistakes, but... nothing on fire yet. Sorry for
the rocky ride, and thanks for not throwing your drink at me. :)
