This is a thank-you report for perl from wyant@cpan.org,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.42 running under perl 5.32.1.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
[Please enter your thank-you message here]

I have used Perl since 5.6. When all the Perl 7 talk started last year,
I feared a repeat of what happened to Perl 5 when Perl 6 was announced,
and Perl 5 would come to a screeching halt for the second (and probably
final) time.

Thank you for the work that went into making the 5.32.1 release. I can
not think of a time when I have been happier to have my fears proven
groundless.
