As part of a periodic analysis of CPAN's resources, it was identified that
Perl dev releases are taking up a large chunk of disk space on the CPAN
master server.

For the purpose of the analysis, it's files that match:
/perl-5\.\d?[13579]\./

Right now these files, which have a very limited audience and are
quickly uninteresting except to an even smaller audience, take up around
14% of CPAN.

Would you consider, instead of pushing them to CPAN, posting them to GitHub
using the releases functionality?

Thanks-

-R
