Title: Perl 5.34 upgrade now stable
Author: Sam James <firstname.lastname@example.org>
The Perl project in Gentoo has begun stabilisation of Perl 5.34 
which is the latest stable version released upstream.
While the package manager usually handles this upgrade cleanly,
there are some bugs  which affect Portage's dependency resolution
that sometimes mean rebuilds occur in the wrong order - this is
exacerbated by the packaging model used for Perl (but not its fault).
We therefore recommend the following procedure for users:
1. Sync your tree:
# emerge --sync
2. Perform a full world upgrade, e.g.:
# emerge -a -uvDU @world --keep-going=y
3. If any failures occur, please run perl-cleaner --all, then try again:
# perl-cleaner --all
4. Perform a world upgrade again.
5. Once complete, depclean:
# emerge -a --depclean
If the upgrade fails with conflicts, please try --backtrack=1000 or some
other large number.
Rarely, it may be necessary to perform a one-off installation of a package,
but usually `perl-cleaner` will resolve the issue. If an error message occurs
after running perl-cleaner, try e.g. for a fictional package dev-perl/foo:
# emerge -a --oneshot --verbose dev-perl/foo
If you have any issues, please consult the standard support channels 
(such as our forums or IRC channels) and we will do our best to get your
system working well again.
