There's no way to do all this testing in a vacuum. Make the port.
Publish it. People who want to try it out will and then all the
dependent ports (ie, CPAN modules) that may have broken can get fixed
by a large group of people who may have more time to volunteer.
Seriously, though... is someone actively working on a perl 5.10 port
and can we find out what is holding it up for over 6 months now?
Around February I started wondering about it, but it wasn't such a big
deal to me then. Now it is becoming more of a big deal because our
developers want to start using some of the 5.10 features in our new
projects, but without a port/package it complicates our dev and
production environment management.
