Hi.

The modules under /dist are dual-lifed and maintained in core.

I noticed that for some modules, CPAN releases have not been happening.

Examples:
ExtUtils::ParseXS, on CPAN 3.35 (2017), in blead 3.44
FindBin, on CPAN 1.52 (2020), in blead 1.53
PathTools, on CPAN 3.75 (2018), in blead 3.83
Term::ReadLine, on CPAN 1.14 (2013), in blead 1.17

these all have as maintainers "P5P" in Porting/Maintainers.pl

can they get updated versions out to CPAN? Otherwise the only way to
get a new version of these modules is to update your perl.
