Pull request to upgrade to 2.27-TRIAL2
Message ID:
As per subject. shows at the
moment 307 pass and 4 fail reports. The fail reports do not reveal
actionable items to me.

From the Changes file:

	* two new options to protect against accidental downgrades:
	allow_installing_outdated_dists and

	* two new options to tune the automatic determination of the
	nearest peers: urllist_ping_external and urllist_ping_verbose;
	NOTE: this feature was developed during the Perl Toolchain Summit
	2019 in Marlow; thanks to the sponsors:, cPanel,
	MaxMind, FastMail, ZipRecruiter, Cogendo, Elastic, OpenCage Data,
	Perl Services, Zoopla, Archer Education, OpusVL, Oetiker+Partner,
	SureVoIP, YEF

	* reveal the size of PERL5LIB in diagnostic output

	* new semantics for parameter ftpstats_size: setting to '0' or
	lower, disables download statistics

	* bugfix: under certain circumstances, failing dependencies via
	recommends and suggests could abort a build; this is now fixed

	* bugfix: protect bundle processing against unavailable bundle
	files and missing build directories

	* bugfix: fix broken permissions after untar

	* bugfix: protect against exceptions from unzip

	* bugfix: add one level of fork+setsid for testing to prevent that
	a test can kill the process group that is running in.
	Learned from experience with testing VIZDOM/DBD-JDBC-0.71.tar.gz

	* fix plugins: all early returns from all methods, that are
	accessible for plugins, now call the post* plugins

	* new question answered in the FAQ: "How can I switch to sudo
	instead of local::lib" (thanks to Amos Bird for asking the
	question on irc)

	* plenty of new and updated distroprefs documents, among which are
	some important ones to prevent Module::AutoInstall from switching
	to CPANPLUS and taking over (and harming) the build
