Subject: portable.perl files contain duplicate entries
The portable.perl file, which is used to adjust Config values, has a duplicate entry for installbin. This was a larger problem with older strawberry versions, where Parse::CPAN::Meta was used to load that file: https://github.com/Perl-Toolchain-Gang/Parse-CPAN-Meta/issues/11#issuecomment-102557882 That has since been resolved, but the file still isn't a valid YAML file.

Fixed in git repo, the next release should be fine.

Would it be possible to do that release soon? This is an important fix and it should go out ASAP. Thanks!

I am currently working on strawberry perl 5.22.0.1 which will be released shortly after 5.22.0 is released (within a week or two). Or do you mean to make a strawberry perl 5.20.2.2 release ?

Just my opinion, but I think this is serious enough to justify a 5.20.2.2, for people who may not want to jump to 5.22 right away.
This doesn't actually cause any real problems with the current way strawberry handles the file. The YAML parser it uses, Portable::LoadYaml, doesn't cause any warnings or errors when loading the file even if it has duplicates.

aha, right, this was only a big problem with *earlier* versions of strawberry, that actually used Parse::CPAN::Meta instead of its own yaml parser. Ok then, no extra release is needed then!

That's a good news as preparing for 5.22.0 is quite a lot of work.
fixed in 5.22.0.1
