the 2009.1 version of the mandriva linux distribution will be released rsn.
once this happens, i'll be able to update the rpm packages for which i'm responsible. indeed, to polish the release, mandriva was in version freeze for the last 45 days. that is, we contributors were not allowed to upload a new upstream version of a package - unless we can prove it's a bugfix version only.
but i digress, let's get back to this blog entry. i'm responsible for 86 packages within mandriva, most of them being perl cpan modules. and what's interesting, is that during this month & a half of forced inactivity, 19 of them have been updated. in fact, some of them have seen more than one cpan release.
19 packages updated out of 86 (20 if you count a new parrot version) during 45 days. around 25%. that's not bad. and it definitely proves that the perl community is still alive!
