Sponsor, random packager, part of the rabble :) I maintain a bunch of packages, most of them Perl. If you note something wrong/wanted/etc, please don't hesitate to send me an email or open a bug against the package.
Like what I'm doing? Feel free to check out my Amazon wishlist ;)
Perl Package Update Methodology
In general, I try to keep Rawhide and the current release (n) tracking released versions on the CPAN. Developer versions (e.g. x.y_zz) are not usually built and released, even to Rawhide, unless there's a good reason for it. The previous Fedora release (n-1) is maintained at the same level as n until the n+1 hits its alpha freeze, at which point updates are done as needed or requested.
Whatever point we are in this process, please feel free to open a bug against any package asking for an update, if so desired.
Rawhide tracks the current CPAN releases.
Current Fedora release
The current Fedora release (n) tracks the latest CPAN levels, unless there's a good reason not to, e.g. incompatible API change in a distribution.
Prior Fedora release
This will track n until such time as n+1 hits Alpha. After that time, updates are issued either as needed or as requested.
