Bug#821208: (mini)transition: perl 5.22.2
Perl 5.22.2 is to be released on Sunday 24th April or so.
A release candidate is currently in experimental. This
is a stable update with just bugfix changes, see
http://perldoc.perl.org/perlpolicy.html#MAINTENANCE-BRANCHES for the
As usual with a Perl minor release, four packages will need a binNMU:
Also, libmodule-corelist-perl and libperl-apireference-perl will need
sourceful uploads. I'll take care of the former unless somebody in
pkg-perl beats me to it. The latter will start to FTBFS until upstream
adds support for 5.22.2, but it can be removed from testing temporarily
As you can see, this is a very small transition. Please let us know if
we can upload to unstable straight away when 5.22.2 is released, or if
we should hold off for some reason.
