Yes. The fact that 5.10.0 *is the first version* of the 5.10
*maintenance branch*. It just so happens that for whatever
reason Perl devs call this first version of a maintenance
branch a "testing" version.
They probably should revisit the way they call it testing,
but I've been around Perl for a *long* time. I even read the
comp.lang.perl.misc newsgroup for years and years. What an
anal group they are!
Anyway, I'd simply like you to reconsider closing that
