  Suggested patches

   Thomas Sibley provided some patchs for [19]Module::CoreList, one of which
   is [20]Perl #129858 , which exposes information about utilities that come
   with core, and the versiono in which they were introduced.

   Andrew Fresh provided a patch in [21]Perl #129895 to fix a test in
   OpenBSD.

Discussion

   Proving it is never too late to help, Dmitry Karasik [22]provided an
   answer to a question Jakko Hietaniemi asked a year ago, on results of
   testing the perl source with the [23]viva64 source code analysis tool.

   Following the conversation about the definition of a hash key, Todd
   Rinaldo [24]raises a few interesting questions and provides a suggested
   patch for simplifying the structure.

   Dave Nicol [25]provided an invested response to Dave Mitchell's question
   on the topic of (\@a) = \($x,$y) in non-void context.

   Dave Mitchell on the same topic [26]provided another observation
regarding
   list assignment in list context.

   Christian Walde [27]asked about the current maintainership status of
   [28]Cwd and [29]File::Spec.

   Jarkko Hietaniemi [30]provided an update about the status of perl on
   NetBSD/VAX. It's now passing about 98% of the tests.
