A rule of thumb for an average topic with just a handful of commits
is to stay in 'next' for about a week before graduating.  A larger
topic with wider implications to the codebase may want to be a few
weeks in 'next' (or stay there since before -rc0 and during the
feature freeze to the final), while a more trivially correct ones
may be there only overnight.

I tend to think that the perl-fixes topic is something we'd rather
want to push packgers to try sooner rather than later; there aren't
room for "bugs" that affects program execution, but the impact is
more to the installation procedure people have around our build
procedure.

I do not have a firm opinion on pcre v1 vs v2; the patches are only
about flipping the default and not robbing any capabilities from the
packagers and the users, so I do not see any need to be unusually
careful to merge it down (compared to other topics).
