in reply to Perl 5.30 is official!

Perl 5.30.0 represents approximately 11 months of development since Perl 5.28.0 and contains approximately 620,000 lines of changes across 1,300 files from 58 authors.
This seems like a very high number of "lines of changes"...

That's about 1.5 line-changes per minute on average over 11 months - can that really be true or am I misunderstanding this metric?
