One step closer: Perl 5.10.0 RC2 is out

Rafael has put out the second release candidate for Perl 5.10.0. Please download, build and test on your own specific machines and let's get Perl 5.10.0 out live.


It would be nice to have more information on how to help with the testing.

Example: A few tests (IPC and op/groups) failed on my OS X 10.4.11 installation -- what now? Do I enter a bug report somewhere or just send the info to one of the mailing lists?

Brief notices like this one are great, but it needs to funnel users to more direct actions. A link to downloading Perl 5.10 is a good start, but what do I do when I have a problem? What is the process? A Google search doesn't turn up much, and there's not much info on about getting involved in development or testing (other than the mailing list, of course).

I've forwarded your comment on to the Perl 5 Porters.
