  • is on the fact that Activestate is getting closer and closer to what is effectively core perl (plus all the whizzy tools they throw in). That means they can just keep track of core perl, rather than continually have to patch problems.

      ActivePerl has been extremely close to core perl for a long time. At least since 5.6 days. The difference are just additional bug fixes integrated from the core development track. We do submit all patches we want to make to ActivePerl to p5p first and then integrate the patches back from the core repository (at least in principle). There are some remaining differences, but I hope to get most of them removed over the next few months.

      I always view ActivePerl releases as being snapshots somewhere along the path between core maintenance releases.
