I haven't seen any changes proposed to  It's out of scope 
for Perl 5 Porters.  And I certainly hope that no change is proposed.

The virtue of is that all CPAN contributors get an issue 
tracker for free.   They can, if they wish, change the location at which 
a distro's issues are tracked to another location, e.g.,

But most CPAN distros still have issues tracked on -- as I 
can testify from recent personal experience.  Yesterday, as part of 
ongoing work on the CPAN-River-3000 project, I had to determine why 94 
different CPAN distros had failed to install against perl-5.31.0.  That 
entailed going to the issue trackers for their distros.  Of 46 distros 
where I had to make a notation as to the issue tracker location, 40 were and only 6 were

That being said, the sysadmins have been in a "shut down 
services" mode of late -- e.g., -- so I'm keeping my 
fingers crossed.
