Can somebody briefly explain the criteria for appending a '+patches' to
the Perl version?
Good question!
e.g. as far as I can tell, every Debian perl
package has patches (from looking at the debian package Changelog
files), but only one is flagged as such.
Squeeze wasn't on the list at all - when I looked up the perl version
it had the '+patches' - I didn't think to check the others.
I submitted a pull request with Ubuntu added to the page, but
because of my lack of understanding I omitted '+patches' on any version.
I may just put 'OS versions of Perl may have minor patches applied to them'
or something generic on the page - either way I'll update the template
once I've had a chance to discuss with a couple of people.

Pull request merged - thanks!
