In my experience, a lot of bug reports containing the magic string
"perl" in bugzilla.redhat.com or here do not tend to draw much
attention.  Hopefully there will be something that the community can do
about it in future FC.

That's my fault. I don't get much time to spend on perl as I would like. Now that CVS is exposed, though, I'm hoping I get more help from the community :)

Count me in!


There are a TON of perl bugs at this point.  Many are no longer valid,
but many are.  I need to triage them all, but that would likely take
more time than fixing most of the ones worth fixing, I suspect.

Here goes a list of outdated perl modules in Rawhide. A good place to start is the perl Time::HiRes core module and the standalone one (more information below). I can also help reviewing some of the bugzilla perl entries, in particular the ones I created.
