Yesterday we published the report for the Debian Perl Sprint 2015
and now we'd like to post a blog entry in bits.debian.org. Please
find the draft attached below (sorry, no pictures available) and
the online version[0].

A short mention on the next DPN would be appreciated too.

Thanks a lot!

Title: Debian Perl Sprint 2015
Slug: debian-perl-sprint-2015

Status: draft

The [Debian Perl](https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/DebianPerlGroup) team had its [first sprint](https://wiki.debian.org/Sprints/2015/DebianPerlSprint) in May and it was a success: 7 members met in Barcelona the weekend from May 22nd to May 24th to kick off the development around perl for Stretch and to work on QA tasks across the more than 3000 packages that the team maintains.

Even though the participants enjoyed the beautiful weather and the food very much, a good amount of work was also done:

* 53 bugs were filed or worked on, 31 uploads were accepted.
* The current practice of patch management (`quilt`) was discussed and possible alternatives were shown (`git-debcherry` and `git-dpm`).
* Improvements were made in the Debian Perl Tools (`dpt`) and discussed how to get track of upstream git history and tags.
* Team's policies, documentation and recurring tasks were reviewed and updated.
* Perl 5.22 release was prepared and `src:perl` plans for Stretch were discussed.
* `autopkgtest` whitelists were reviewed, new packages added, and IRC notificacions by KGB were discussed.
* Outstanding migrations were reviewed.
* Reproducibility issues with `POD_MAN_DATE` were commented.

The [full report](https://lists.debian.org/debian-perl/2015/07/msg00009.html) was posted to the relevant Debian mailing lists.

The participants would like to thank the [Computer Architecture Department](http://www.ac.upc.edu/) of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya for hosting us, and all donors to the Debian project who helped to cover a large part of our expenses.
