= Proposed System Wide Change: Perl 5.22 =

Change owner(s): Jitka Plesníková <jplesnik at redhat.com>, Petr Písař <ppisar at redhat.com>

A new perl 5.22 version brings a lot of changes done over a year of development. Perl 5.22 should be released 4/20/2015. See 5.21.11 perldelta for more details about preparing release. 

== Detailed Description ==
New perl is released every year and updates containing mainly bug fixes follow during the year. The 5.22.0 version is stable release this year. 

== Scope ==
Every Perl package will be rebuilt in a dedicated f23-perl build-root against perl 5.22.0 and then if no major problem emerges the packages will be merged back to f23 build-root.

* Proposal owners: New perl and all packages requiring perl or a Perl module will be rebuilt into f23-perl build-root.
* Other developers: Owners of packages that fail to rebuild, mainly perl-sig users, will be asked using Bugzilla to fix or remove their packages from the distribution.
* Release engineering: Release engineers will be asked for new f23-perl build-root inheriting from f23 build-root. After successful finishing the rebuild, they will be asked to merge f23-perl packages back to f23 build-root.
* Policies and guidelines: No policies have to be modified to complete this change.
