jimhallsun has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I am using perlbrew to install a newer version of perl onto a new MacBook I received (yay me!).

Install breaks down it seems due to Time::HiRes and some newer time functions in MacOS. Here is what I believe to be the responsible ticket:

It looks like patch is identified in the ticket and *looks* like the dev team was going to supply a back port fix for 5.24 and 5.26, but at least the perlbrew distro of 5.26.2 & 5.26.4 does not have the patch applied still.

What is the polite way to ask status on this ticket and just let the appropriate people know this fix impacts me in a nice and friendly way?
