In Perl 5.24, left braces { in regular expressions should be escaped as \{ to distinguish them clearly from the match count {n,m}, otherwise a warning will be printed during compilation. In TWikis without persistent Perl interpreter this floods the error logs. A fix should be available before Linux distributions start shipping Perl 5.24.

This is the item for the default plugins, with one commit per plugin to follow.

See TWiki:Codev.TWikiWithCurrentPerl for details.
