Moin,

I wanted to download older Perl versions for testing a bug and hit perl.com's
download arrea. Only to find:

Latest stable is 5.8.1
Latest devel is "none at present", but it still links to a download location
(I wonder what I get if I click this link - seems a wonderfull 404)
Previous version is 5.005_003

Huh?

It seems that only the front on Perl.com is borken, because looking at
http://www.perl.com/CPAN/src/ has 5.6.1, 5.8.0, 5.8.1, 5.5.3 and no devel
release (shouldn't that be a snapshot of blead and/or a snapshot of 5.6.2?)

Also, I am not sure if the duplicates at perl.com/CPAN/src are links, or if 
somebody just copied the same tar.gz as multiple versions. Could save some 
diskspace otherwise :)

Best wishes,

Te"Version number chaos"ls
