Help needed with perl-tk NMU

Hi all

I didn't hear back from Colin, and so I think in order to unblock
the perl 5.32 transition we need to NMU either a targeted fix for
perl 5.32 compatibility, or the new upstream release. I'm not sure
which is more appropriate given the time since the last release in

Any takers? I'm a bit short on time myself, these days.

See http://perl.debian.net/ for the test repository you might need
to verify fixes.

Hi Colin,

This is one of the few remaining blockers for the Perl 5.32 transition
which we'll need to get in in the next couple of months - will you be
able to take a look at updating perl-tk in the near future?
