Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.

Updating My Test Suite Presentation

[ #35768 ]

I've had enough problems with code with global effects both causing bugs in our code and having performance hits that we've today developed a system to handle local CPAN patches to make these issues go away. One thing I did to check to see how widespread the problem is to run the following code over our CPAN library:

ack '(?:CORE::GLOBAL|UNIVERSAL)::[[:word:]].*=' lib/

The results were depressing and I'll be outlining our 'local patching' system in the test talk I'll be giving in Oslo (and hopefully at OSCON).
