perldelta [ was: Re: Perl 5.26.0-RC1 is now available!]
Message ID:

I've just pushed my last set of reviews of perldelta.

A couple of things I wasn't clear about.

    =head2 Platform-Specific Notes

there are separate entries for

    =item Darwin
    =item OS X
    =item macOS (specifially macOS 10.12)

Are all these essentially the same platform? (I'm not very familiar with

Similarly, there are separate entries for

    =item Windows
    =item Win32

should these all be under 'Windows'?

Finally under

    =head1 Reporting Bugs

it starts off:

    If you find what you think is a bug, you might check the articles recently
    posted to the comp.lang.perl.misc newsgroup and the perl bug database at
    L<>  .

I think we've been removing mentions of newsgroups on the grounds that
they're no longer the main goto point for perl pregrammers. I suggest I
remove it. I'm not sure how it keeps getting there - does
Porting/ extract it from an older perldelta?

Finally finally, note that RC2 still contains all the
pod/perl525*delta.pod files.
