     * Added new env vars to select JSON backends for Parse::CPAN::Meta so it can use Cpanel::JSON::XS, Mojo::JSON, etc. (currently shipped as devrel)
     * Wrangled puppet and postgresql replication for metacpan, mostly ready though certain parts of the puppet module are un(der)documented so not quite finished reverse engineering it all into puppet configs
     * Volunteered as resident 'blogs.perl.org anti-drama llama' so other people could do more useful things than get into arguments
-    * Helped a bunch of people crowbar a bunch of things in infrastructure and systems-ish stuff, plus being fresh eyes for debugging a few times

+    * '''[http://perlformance.net|Benchmark::Perl::Formance]'''
+       * Finetuned my benchmark bundle "perlstone2015" which I started last year.
+       * Extended my ~300 Perl installations (of versions since 5.8.9, +/- threaded, +/-64bit) with the 5.23.* series and 5.24.0.
+       * Updated all those Perls to use current same set of CPAN dependencies.
+       * Ran the "fastmode" variants (reduced runtime) over most of these Perls.
+       * Created new charts and a [http://perlformance.net/charts/perlstone2015-f|dashboard]
+       * First conclusions:
+           * reported micro optimizations like the "small blocks" entry/exit improvement are visible
+           * algorithmic benchmarks like '''binarytrees''', '''fannkuch''', '''fasta''', '''nbody''', '''mandelbrot''' became remarkably faster during 5.23.*
+           * others like '''regexdna''' and '''spectralnorm''' became already faster with 5.20, and could keep that speed
+           * some regex micro benchmarks run faster
+           * however, the regex engine micro benchmarks generally became slower since 5.18, but at least kept stable at that level until 5.24.0.
+       * *CAVEAT* - I could only run the scaled-down "fastmode" benchmarks. I will run the heavier-weight benchmarks throughout the next weeks.
+    * '''Perl and CPAN::Reporter on L4 Linux'''
+       * Built Perl 5.22.1 and enabled CPAN::Reporter on an Ubuntu 16.04 system running an "L4 Linux" kernel 4.4.
+       * L4 Linux is a Linux variant running on the [http://kernkonzept.com/l4re.html|L4Re micro-kernel].
+    * '''Co-maintaining modules'''
+       * merged github changes from Lance Kinley for [https://metacpan.org/release/SCHWIGON/Net-SSH-Perl-2.01|Net::SSH::Perl] new ciphers, key exchange algorithms and more; released version 2.01 to CPAN, see 
+       * En passant also uploaded Lance Kinley's [https://metacpan.org/pod/Crypt::OpenBSD::Blowfish|Crypt::OpenBSD::Blowfish] to CPAN.
