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.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
