Can we ship 5.28.0 with cygwin broken?
Message ID:
5.28.0 has been delayed enough that it is affecting 5.29/5.30.  We also 
traditionally have it out by the time TPC-NA happens.

We have two blocking tickets open for 5.28.0.

1)  perl_parse() 
return value breaks PostgreSQL pl/perl

blead already contains a revert that should allow this to be removed 
from the list.

2) Cygwin build failure

There is this patch:

From: Tony Cook <>
Date: Wed, 2 May 2018 11:15:30 +1000
Subject: [PATCH] (perl #133152) nostdio.h is broken, don't use it

Is there a reason not to apply this patch, or to ship 5.28.0 now with an 
expectation of a soon 5.28.1?  I think we used to expect the dot 1 to 
come out like a month after dot 0.
