in reply to berrybrew version 1.36 released!

Thanks for your effort! Berrybrew is a really good tool for perl migration on windows, and I always use it when I need to do this work. But I suspect strawberry perl has been stalling. the latest update has stayed on March

    Thank you very much for the kind words! It's truly my pleasure to develop things other people use :)

    That's exactly why I'm going to try to learn what the process is and take it over if I can.

      For the point ("subversion") releases of perl there's not so much involved - it's pretty much just a case of building that latest point release and uploading it along with the already-existing C toolchain and libraries.
      However, for the once-a-year new "version" release there are tasks to be performed that might not be so trivial - eg:
      1) build a new mingw64 port of gcc for inclusion in the package - though 5.32.0 stayed with gcc-8.3.0 (same as 5.30.0);
      2) build the latest version of the C libraries that Strawberry provides ... which can be even less trivial when it comes to building the C libraries that ship with the "PDL" build;
      3) build the latest versions of the "vendor" modules that Strawberry provides (against the latest versions of the afore-mentioned C libraries, where applicable).

      However, by my reckoning it has been 168 days since perl-5.34.0 was released, and it shouldn't take that long to perform these tasks.
      I have seen no requests for any help with any of those tasks ... nor any explanation of why it's taking so long.
      I can only assume that the major problem is one of apathy.

      Cheers,
      Rob

        Last time I heard about it, which was at the beginning of October, the new maintainers complained about their unfamiliarity with the ecosystem on IRC. Unfortunately, I don't remember whether it was #perl on Libera.Chat or irc.perl.org; nevertheless, I'd recommend asking there first if you want to help.
