  • Should be shown as: Perl version    5.8.0 (linux)

In the perl user community it is well known that 5.008 corresponds to perl 5.8. God knows why, presumably they assume we all automatically drop leading zeros :-(.


Fellow developers. Please make sure you check in fixes that are targeted for next patch to the patch branch

If you rely on the release manager to see it then some checkins will be lost and bugfixes not applied.

If you checkin a fix and is not sure if it should be in patch then keep it open and ask me to decide via a Waiting for.

Then I will merge if I agree it is a patch fix. But if it goes in Waiting for Release then I may miss it.

It is only because I saw one missed item I decided to walk through ALL checkins.

It is now merged to TWiki04x01 (4.1.1)
