I don't think this is the appropriate thread to use to raise this issue,
especially by CC'ing everyone, including the NOC. The Perl NOC team
cannot help with either fixing a core bug, reviewing a patch, or telling
you when your issue will be resolved and which release will contain
it. Please, do not reply-all to an email unless you think it's useful.
Thank you for finding a bug and providing a fix for it. If someone had
not reviewed it yet, it could be because:
1. They were really busy with other stuff. (You can view the Grant
reports for three of the reviewers to see what they were busy with and
emails by other core developers.)
2. They did not fully understand the patch (the explanation was sparse)
and decided to take more time to review it. (This happens from good
intentions, not to bother you with a longer explanation of your work,
but does delay review.)
3. They did not have access to a machine to test it themselves to verify
it works and are waiting until they could verify it.
4. There were higher priorities on their list of tasks.
5. Some other well intentioned reason.
Regardless, you should have had some kind of response to your ticket and
I'm sorry that didn't happen. We will make sure to review it soon. One
thing to keep in mind is the level of code freeze we are in, which might
not allow this to be included, regardless of now or a few weeks ago.
 At least not in their capacity as NOC.
