now back to where I was at the end of the Reposithon

[ #34159 ]

Ok, so with a bit more work, I've managed to get a full 169 more commits out of the 5.003_08 -> 5.004 series. I'm proud of it as a loving restoration of the history of the period, a tribute to the work that went into this quality Perl release. Perhaps 50% of the changes are attributed and applied separately, including countless patches mined from the Perl 5 porters archives.

Here are the updated sections of THE RECORDS with the new commit totals:

Exercise: download this 8MB pack file, then see if you can find the 1812 commits within. Start with git index-pack
