If there are Perl 5.10 problems you've been waiting for Debian's transition 
to help us out, you've gotten all the help you are going to get.  Time to 
get to work.

Subj: Perl 5.10 transition: Done

>The Perl5.10 transition has now been completed, with about 400 source
>packages in testing getting updates (either by new source versions or
>binNMUs). I have removed the upload block for the involved packages and
>would like to thank all involved maintainers, bug reporters and the Perl
>maintainer team for their help.
>In the course of the perl5.10 transition, new versions of heimdal,
>clamav and sendmail/libmilter have moved to testing. The release team
>has planned several other, considerably less complex updates for
>xulrunner, ocaml, ffmpeg, poppler and nautilus over the next weeks.
>Please also note that this new perl version is the last major update to
>the Debian toolchain for lenny.
