A new perl 5.20 version brings a lot of changes done over a year of
development. See 5.20.0 perldelta  for more details.
== Detailed Description ==
New perl is released every year and updates containing mainly bug fixes follow
during the year. The 5.20.0 version is stable release this year.
== Scope ==
Every Perl package will be rebuilt in a dedicated ''f22-perl'' build-root
against perl 5.20.0 and then if no major problem emerges the packages will be
merged back to ''f22'' build-root.
* Proposal owners:
New perl and all packages requiring perl or a Perl module will be rebuilt into
* 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 f22-perl build-root inheriting from
f22 build-root. After successful finishing the rebuild, they will be asked to
merge f22-perl packages back to f22 build-root.
* Policies and guidelines:
No policies have to be modified to complete this change.
