The thing I find frustrating about g-cpan.pl is that it doesn't seem to be aware of newer releases of modules. So if I've got an ebuild Catalyst-5.23.ebuild created by g-cpan.pl, if 5.30 is released another run of g-cpan.pl does nothing. Does anyone know how easy this would be to fix/add? Or is this something that someone like myself should be investigating and submitting a patch for?
