  Our greatest power as nations and individuals is not the ability to

The list above is almost certainly incomplete as it is automatically
generated from version control history. In particular, it does not
include the names of the (very much appreciated) contributors who
reported issues to the Perl bug tracker.

Many of the changes included in this version originated in the CPAN
modules included in Perl's core. We're grateful to the entire CPAN
community for helping Perl to flourish.

For a more complete list of all of Perl's historical contributors,
please see the AUTHORS file in the Perl source distribution.

We expect to release the next development version imminently. The next
major stable release of Perl should appear in the first half of 2022.

Stay safe,
In hugs and bugs,
Sawyer X.
