Hello,
The https://www.cpan.org/MIRRORED.BY file was updated on Sat Apr 10 04:32:30 2021 (UTC) and I believe the syntax is broken. This is the current "Global CPAN CDN Definition" in the file URL noted above:

Global CPAN CDN:
  frequency        = "instant"
  dst_http         = "http://www.cpan.org/"
  dst_location     = "Everywhere, Global, Global (0 0)"
  dst_organisation = "Global CPAN CDN"
  dst_bandwidth    = "100.0 Gb/s"
  dst_contact      = "perl.org#cpan"
  dst_src          = "rsync://cpan-rsync.perl.org/CPAN/"

Shouldn't the first line read

www.cpan.org:

The current syntax breaks the CPAN module FirstTime auto-configure since it's looking for a hostname not a descriptive name.

Thank you for any help you can provide.
