Please only speak about what you used.
If you don't believe me, just look at the drakx SVN's log, we fixed
quite a lot bugs
because of perl_checker:
- corrupted variable names,
- too many or not enough (missing) arguments in function calls,
We routinely run it before commiting, thus catching small issues
before releasing them.
It doesn't fix everything but it does save quite a lot of pain.
Latest example is in rpmdrake where new mdv devs upload a plain broken release
whereas it's now quite a lot more difficult now that I've make
perl_checker run prior
 (though we lost one year of changelog due to server issues)
