With my brand new perl comaintainer hat on, I'd like to fix a date for
this. I just uploaded 5.10.0-7 to experimental fixing the known remaining
problems with libmodule-corelist-perl, and if there aren't any surprises
that should be ready for unstable.

It would be good to get most (if not all) of the remaining 30 or so
arch:any FTBFS bugs fixed before the upload. Just about all of them have
patches filed, so with one or two people (I can be one :) NMU'ing them,
I suppose a week or so would be enough.

Marc, please let us know when the release team would like the upload
to happen.
