Suggested Patches

   Nicholas R. (Atoomic) provided a patch in [9]Perl #132077 to replace
   multiple use vars by our.

   Nicholas also provided a patch in [10]Perl #132080 (switch some core
   modules to [11]XSLoader).
   An additional patch from Nicholas in [12]Perl #132072 to add more context
   when raising a warning, similar to [13]Carp::Always or
[14]Devel::Confess.

   Jim Keenen and Tony Cook provided patches in [15]Perl #132087 to fix
blead
   on Darwin. Patches merged, blead is unbroken.

   Nicholas provided several patches in [16]Perl #132092 (Multiple testsuite
   fixup) which was resolved by merging the relevant patches.

   If you feel like contributing to the Perl core without knowing
everything,
   Karl Williamson would really not [17]object to have a porting test that
   checks that macro arguments involved in expressions are parenthesized.

   Niko Tyni provided a patch in [18]Perl #132100 to address issue raised by
   Jacub Wilk to add a missing newline in a warning.
