For me, magic.t has changed the output numerically but it's still a
fail. With v5.19.2-401-g7fa949d​:

  # Failed test 'the magic object is counted'
  # at t/magic.t line 55.
  # '1248'
  # >

  # Looks like you failed 1 test of 18.

  Dubious, test returned 1 (wstat 256, 0x100)

With v5.19.3-135-gb905762​:

  # Failed test 'the magic object is counted'

Looks like the same failure mode applies to Devel​::Size. I submitted
a patch to fix the test for Devel​::Size in [rt.cpan.org #88182].

At http​://www.cpantesters.org/distro/D/Devel-SizeMe.html, Devel-SizeMe v0.19 is now passing on the overwhelming majority of Perl 5.18.* and 5.19.* reporters.

At http​://www.cpantesters.org/distro/D/Dash-Leak.html, Dash-Leak v0.06 is now passing on 5.18.* and 5.19.* reporters.

So I think this ticket can be closed. I am taking it for the purpose of closing it within 7 days unless someone wishes to take the ticket and pursue matters further.

Thank you very much.

In a different ticket, Andreas pointed me to matrix.cpantesters.org as a more appropriate place to look for failures on blead for any given CPAN distro.

On that basis, I'd like to see if we could get the following smokes run​:

http​://matrix.cpantesters.org/?dist=Devel-SizeMe
Devel-SizeMe 0.19​: cygwin; gnukfreebsd

http​://matrix.cpantesters.org/?dist=Dash-Leak
Dash-Leak 0.06​: anything besides linux

Thank you very much.

I tried building Dash-Leak on Darwin today, but got a message saying that it was not yet supported on Darwin.

So I would not consider any failures with Dash-Leak to be a blocker for 5.20.

However, I would still like to get smokes of Devel-SizeMe against blead on more platforms.

Thank you very much.

Tonight I got a build failure for Devel-SizeMe on Darwin x86_86 against Perl 5 blead (using perlbrew). I have reported that as in Devel-SizeMe's queue on rt.cpan.org.

"Devel​::SizeMe is so intimate with the perl core that I would expect it to break on bleadperl changes fairly often.

"Devel​::SizeMe breaking shouldn't be a blocker for a perl release."

So, not a blocker.

The fault lies in String-Slice. It's not correctly de-COWing a scalar var
before making it an alias of a string slice. The correct way to do it
is currently the subject of RT #116925.

Since this RT was filed in August 2013, five CPAN distributions have been cited as suffering breakage. Here is what I believe to be the current status of each.

#####
Devel-SizeMe's most recent version is 0.19. CPAN Testers have been reporting it as NA/UNKNOWN/INVALID on each of 3 OSes since perl-5.19.10. In a June 2014 post on perl.module-authors, the maintainer indicated he does not expect to work on this distribution in the near future. (http​://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.module-authors/2014/06/msg10394.html)

Dash-Leak has been passing consistently on Linux since 5.19.8 (http​://matrix.cpantesters.org/?dist=Dash-Leak).

Devel-Size has been FAILing everywhere since 5.19.4. It has four maintainers listed, but there has been no progress toward a solution.

Variable-OnDestruct-0.03 was reported fixed by Father C Sep 13 2013 and is doing nicely on CPAN testers. (http​://matrix.cpantesters.org/?dist=Variable-OnDestruct)

String-Slice​: The rt.cpan.org ticket for this issue was marked Resolved by Ingy on Jan 03 2015. Its latest version, 0.08, is doing nicely on CPAN testers. (http​://matrix.cpantesters.org/?dist=String-Slice)
#####

It seems to me that the breakage remaining in Devel-SizeMe and Devel-Size is due to factors outside the scope of the Perl 5 Porters. My hunch is that those distributions need new or additional maintainers. But, in the meantime, I don't see any reason to keep *this* ticket in Open status, so I'm moving it to Stalled.

Thank you very much.

Devel-Size has been FAILing everywhere since 5.19.4. It has four

As of v5.27.7 (v5.27.6-191-gff79a40), Devel-Size is building and passing tests in an ordinary Linux build.

Variable-OnDestruct-0.03 was reported fixed by Father C Sep 13 2013

But Devel​::SizeMe remains orphaned; hence, this RT remains Stalled.
