This is very curious.  Although, for example, the web page at

#####
ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/languages/perl/CPAN/src/5.0/
#####
... now says:
#####
perl-5.27.7.tar.gz
	17052 KB 	12/21/17 	12:58:00 AM EST
#####

... (a) it didn't say that at all between 7:00 and 9:30 AM EST, during 
which time I refreshed my browser several times; and (b) my cron job set 
to go off at 4:03 AM EST could not locate perl-5.27.7.tar.gz at that 
time and so failed.

Similarly, the web page at

#####
ftp://ftp.cpan.org/pub/CPAN/src/5.0/
#####
... now says:
#####
perl-5.27.7.tar.gz
		12/21/17 	2:20:00 AM EST
#####

... but it wasn't saying that earlier this morning (EST).

There's something happening here, but you don't know what it is -- do 
you, Mister Jones?

Thank you very much.
