In the process of test-building packages against the next version of
perl (5.27.11, to be released as 5.28.0) we found the following failure
in postgreql-10:

2018-05-17 20:01:44.556 UTC [22629] pg_regress ERROR:  
2018-05-17 20:01:44.556 UTC [22629] pg_regress CONTEXT:  while running Perl initialization
2018-05-17 20:01:44.556 UTC [22629] pg_regress STATEMENT:  CREATE EXTENSION IF NOT EXISTS "plperl"

This bug will become RC nearer the time of the perl 5.28 transition
which is yet to be scheduled.

Note that perl 5.27 is not currently available, even in experimental, just
yet, but we thought that an early heads up would be useful.

If you need to test on perl 5.27, please have a look at
<http://perl.debian.net> for a test repository and don't hesitate to
get in touch if you need more information.
