It's time for Spring cleaning again. If you have ancient versions of
modules sitting around in your PAUSE directory, consider letting them
retire to BackPAN (http://backpan.cpan.org). They don't disappear from
the world, but they don't inflate CPAN either. You don't have to do
anything, but many mirror operators might be happy that you did. :)

It's pretty simple. Log into your PAUSE account and follow the "Delete
files" link:

https://pause.perl.org/pause/authenquery?ACTION=delete_files

Select the files that you can retire and schedule them for deletion. In
three days, PAUSE deletes them. That gives you a chance to change your
mind.

Let's see how high we can increase the Schwartz:
