Perl 5.12 transition approaching

Hi all,

As detailed on
the transition to perl 5.12, beginning with the upload of 5.12.3 to
unstable, is almost upon us. There are quite a few blocking bugs
still though, as listed on that page. Of particular interest to
the Debian perl group are:

- libclone-fast-perl #615571
- libvideo-capture-v4l-perl #621466
- libdevice-cdio-perl #579450
- libgstreamer-perl #616454
- libsgml-parser-opensp-perl #613199
  (although this is intermittent; it may not be a problem on the
- libembperl-perl #624578
- libclutter-perl #620936

Not all of these are perl 5.12 specific bugs; but they are all now RC.

As a reminder, the list of bugs which are perl 5.12 specific is at:

If anyone has any inspiration for how to fix any of the blocking bugs,
that would be welcomed. In any case, expect an upload of perl 5.12
to unstable soon.
