Deadline for the $[ deprecation: 5.30?
Message ID:
Hi Porters,

At last year's Perl5 Core Hackathon in Amsterdam, we went through all
the deprecation warnings and added deadlines for their removal, but we
missed $[.  At this year's hackathon this was brought up, and I seem to
recall we decided to set a deadline of 5.30, but I'm not 100% certain,
and can't find any mention of it in the hackathon wiki
( or my IRC logs.

Does anyone object to 5.30 as the deadline?  It's been emitting a
deprecation warning since 5.12.

At the hackathon I volunteered to submit patches to all the CPAN modules
that would break (and still otherwise work on recent perls). I stand by
this offer.
