Still using perl 5.6.x?

For the upcoming release of Apache SpamAssassin, we’re considering dropping support for perl 5.6.x interpreters. Perl 5.6.0 is 9 years old, and the most recent maintainance release, 5.6.2, dates back to November 2003. The current 5.x release branch is 5.10, so we’re still sticking with a “support the release branch before the current one” policy this way.

If you’re still using one of the 5.6.x versions, or know of a (relatively recent) distro that does, please reply to highlight this….
