    The conversation around the possible deprecation of [30]encoding.pm

    The conversation around the usage of strcpy in locale.c [32]continued.

    Vincent Pit [33]notes on the conversation about a compile-time indirect
    method call check that the current implementation of the [34]indirect
    pragma is not suitable for core. [35]Abigail is not in favor of having it
    in core at all. Zefram [36]hints at [37]Sub::StrictDecl.

    Father Chrysostomos opened [38]Perl #128242 to discuss the idea of
    providing aliasing on the right hand side of a my statement. There are
    many questions about this and there's even the possibility of introducing
    a new character for this new type of ability. I recommend reading
    by Zefram provided [39]here and [40]here.

    In [41]Perl #128241 Father Chrysostomos suggests handling the
situation of
    a regex with a variable that ends up to be empty: /$empty/. Because it is
    then equivalent to //, it will do something different than what
usually is
    expected. The threads of conversation on the topic are [42]here and

    Aristotle Pagaltzis [44]suggests removing unused [45]POSIX symbol without
    a deprecation cycle since it isn't used anywhere in CPAN.

    I wasn’t quite that brash. Aaron suggested it, a related deprecation is
    already under way, and the CPAN just corroborated my other reasoning.

    I intended to be succinct, not imply hasty decision-making on your part.
    My apologies.
