Here's a short report, based on the gobby notes which were taken by

ntyni, Dom, dam, jonas, alexm, XTaran, cstamas, carnil, gregoa


* perl 5.22: status of the transition
* pkg-perl-autopkgtest: potential improvements (cf. various bugs reports by ntyni)
  (#799444, #799486, #799487)
* experiences with git-debcherry, maybe a demo

Perl 5.22 transition

* Latest news on the Perl 5.22 transition were in
* Fate of libcoro-perl:
  - amount of rdeps not crazy
  - jonas: I can drop the coroae plugin from uwsgi
  - Verdict: drop
* Ongoing work on mod-perl upstream.
* Soon time to upgrade bugs to serious.
* Dom to send an update.


* ntyni is happy with experiences.
* Integration of helper scripts into pkg-perl-tools? More
* fsfs and ntyni will keep group updated.

pkg-perl-autopkgtest improvements

* Seem good. Work needs to be done. Comments to go to the bugreports.

Ideas for future LHF meetings and work after the discussion

* https://reproducible.debian.net/unstable/amd64/pkg_set_maint_pkg-perl-maintainers.html
  (esp. FTBFS)
  Some problems were fixed and new bugs reported.
* Upgrade autopkgtest to work with newer pkg-perl-autopkgtest
* alexm to resume work on it
* Suggestion came to also try that with perl 5.22.


XTaran and cstamas worked for hours on
https://people.debian.org/~abe/pkg-perl-duck-2015-08-13.txt and fixed
most URL issues. Pending tasks at same URL.
