We have a de facto process for dealing with breakages caused by changes in perl. If this breakage is a documented one and unlikely to be reverted, then the tickets go directly to the affected CPAN modules. If it is not, then a BBC ticket is created first, with a link to a blocker ticket. If now this BBC ticket is closed or the blocker link removed, then the information chain about the breakage is effectively broken --- without informing the CPAN authors.

And it does not matter if a CPAN module is directly or only indirectly affected. The author of the indirectly affected module may decide to use an alternative module or implementation.

So yes: anybody closing a ticket or removing a blocker link should make sure that every interested party is informed.
