    • Refaliasing might be able to be deëxperimentalized if we add a warning on the currently-failing closure capture cases
    • RFC001…

    Paul, Philippe, and Rik had our regular call today to talk about perl5.

    We put together some notes (at long last) for The Perl Foundation to use in their annual prospectus.

    We talked about Math-Complex, and moving its issues into Perl5 GitHub. (A nice bit of work for anybody to do,…

    Having been off for two weeks, we spent a while just catching up with the state of the world. Not much of note to report this week.

    • We decided we should write up a list of "what's expected in 5.38" to ensure we're on track

    Just Paul and Rik, Philippe could not join us today.

    • We talked about the difficulty of taking work that the author thinks is good, and may commit, but on which no significant feedback has been received. Rik will post more about this a bit later.
    • We ran through the RFC tracker, pu…

    Back to the full three of us. Not much needed looking at this week.

    We're trying out new ways to send out these regular announcements of what we get up to on the Perl Steering Council. This will be a regular posting that gives a brief summary of what we discussed in our weekly (or at least, near-weekly, give or take scheduling clashes) meetings.

  • Posted What happened to Perl 7? to Perl Steering Council

    With Perl 5.36.0 just around the corner, we thought that this is a good time to clarify plans for the future of the Perl programming language. We realised that the future was hammered out in a number of steps, across several months. This meant that there hasn't been a single statement we could…
