ext/GDBM_File/t/fatal.t: 2 test failures in perl-5.28.0-RC4
Message ID:
On #p5p today, rindolf reported a failure in the test suite 
for perl-5.28.0-RC4.  He provided this link:

DDG-ing for the test description -- Trapped error when attempting to 
write to knobbled GDBM_File -- I was very quickly brought back to RT:

In that ticket we eventually concluded that there were problems upstream 
in GDBM that were outside our ability to correct.  We implemented a 
skip_all for tests run on darwin -- the platform with the greatest 
instance of test failures.

I suspect that here, too, the problem will be upstream.  Shlomi, please 
file a bug ticket via 'perlbug'.  However, absent evidence that this was 
introduced during the 5.27 development cycle, I do not believe we should 
treat this as a blocker for the release of perl-5.28.0.

Thank you very much.
