version freeze happened on october 1st for mandriva, at which point it wasn't possible to upload new version - unless to fix a bug preventing usage. since we know that cpan modules don't have such bugs, it means that almost no perl package was updated till cooker reopening (which happened on november 6th).
so, how many dists needed an update after ~40 days? around 150. yes, 150. on 1685 distributions shipped by mandriva. and some of those were updated more than once...
that's ~10%. a bit less than what was reported in april for mandriva 2009.1, but:
- this time it's for whole mandriva, not only the packages i'm responsible for
- freeze was a bit longer for 2009.1
 cooker is mandriva's development version
