Turned out to be prophetic tho. :-) I forgot to ask Andreas for PAUSE
permission to do the upload. So the rest will have to happen tomorrow.

Folks that are interested can test the RC1 with:

Doesn't look like a RC2 is required.

Sorry for the delay. I dont think I'll change the release date in
perlhist unless someone replies to say I should.

There is an awful lot of manual stuff in that process that IMO could be
automated, and at least some that I wonder if it really is necessary
(comparing the files from one release to another for instance, isnt that
what the MANIFEST is for?). Definitely a todo list where experience would
make a difference in how long it takes.
