Three members of the Debian Perl team met in Hamburg between May 16 and May 20 2018 as part of the Mini-DebConf Hamburg to continue perl development work for Buster and to work on QA tasks across our 3500+ packages.

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

  • 21 bugs were filed or worked on, many uploads were accepted.
  • The transition to Perl 5.28 was prepared, and versioned provides were again worked on.
  • Several cleanup tasks were performed, especially around the move from Alioth to Salsa in documentation, website, and wiki.
  • For src:perl, autopkgtests were enabled, and work on Versioned Provides has been resumed.

The full report was posted to the relevant Debian mailing lists.

The participants would like to thank the Mini-DebConf Hamburg organizers for providing the framework for our sprint, and all donors to the Debian project who helped to cover a large part of our expenses.
