Three members of the Debian Perl Group met in Hamburg between May 23 and May 30 2022 as part of the Debian Reunion Hamburg to continue perl development work for Bookworm and to work on QA tasks across our 3800+ packages.

The participants had a good time and met other Debian friends. The sprint was also productive:

  • pkg-perl-tools and dh-make-perl were improved and extended.
  • More than 50 uploads were done, and more than 30 bugs were fixed or at least triaged.
  • autopkgtests were added to lots of packages.
  • Some requests to remove obsolete packages were filed as well.

The more detailed report was posted to the Debian Perl mailing list.

The participants would like to thank the Debian Reunion Hamburg organizers for providing the framework for our sprint, all sponsors of the event, and all donors to the Debian project who helped to cover parts of our expenses.
