Tinita spent about 25 hours coding YAML::PP during March.
She emitted a production release at YAML::PP 0.006, which incorporates items from her previous reports, adding Writer and Representer objects, a nice Dumper, and cyclic reference detection.
In a spirit of multi-cultural outreach and understanding, she also made her first PR to PyYAML.
You can read all the details in her latest report.

This is a monthly report by Dave Mitchell on his grant under Perl 5 Core Maintenance Fund. We thank the TPF sponsors to make this grant possible.
I spent the last month mainly doing two things:
1) fixing up Deparse.pm so that running the whole perl test suite through Deparse, i.e. ./TEST -deparse doesn't have any new failures.
2) going through the list of broken-in-blead top-1000 CPAN distributions to confirm which now worked etc. SUMMARY: 13:39 fix up TEST -deparse 6:17 investigate BBC blockers 0:40 process p5p mailbox ------ 20:36 TOTAL (HH::MM) 232.9 weeks 3030.9 total hours 13.0 average hours per week There are 102 hours left on the grant
