v5.38.0 release branch now exists
Message ID:

I have created draft #21108 <>, which creates a v5.38.0 release branch, which will currently build as v5.38.0-RC0.

There are more (small, I believe) known issues to review, but for now:
 • on my laptop, t/porting/libperl.t fails, undefined current object: op.o: at porting/libperl.t line 254, <$nm_fh> line 2.
 • the perldelta may yet have errors
 • perlhist needs updating
The first worries me:  I just updated macOS yesterday, which changed some bits of my build stack, and I wonder if this is now a general "new xcode problems" problem.  I haven't tried building on Linux or building an older version.  I don't want to ship a new perl that doesn't build on today's macOS.

The second:  committers should feel free to push perldelta fixes to my branch, but be aware that I might drop or edit them!

The third:  I'll do it soon.

I apologize for my general lack of updates on the release for the last two weeks.  Other things, generally much more pressing, have kept piling up.  I may be past enough of them now… 😉
