As advised by the "i" page in Cloudmin's Webmin interface, I updated.
The documentation explains it rather simply; CPAN works with the generosity and cooperation of thousands of developers, over 253 participating mirrors, many companies, institutions and individuals donating the network bandwidth, storage space and computing power, volunteers who help keep everything together and users whose interest in Perl keep the archive alive and growing.
Perl's process, file, and text manipulation facilities make it particularly well-suited for tasks involving quick prototyping, system utilities, software tools, system management tasks, database access, graphical programming, networking, and web programming.
These strengths make it especially popular with system administrators and web developers, but mathematicians, geneticists, journalists, and even managers also use Perl. Perl 5 and Perl 6 are two languages in the Perl family, but of different lineages.
Perl is a high-level programming language with an eclectic heritage written by Larry Wall and a cast of thousands.
It derives from the ubiquitous C programming language and to a lesser extent from sed, awk, the Unix shell, and at least a dozen other tools and languages.
Normally you do not have to care at all about perl-core packages or virtuals; if you need any specifics there they should be pulled in as dependencies.
Since many packages depend on the perl, Portage is aware of the global perl USE flag.
Shortly after the announcement a number of updates were released including some third-party C-libraries and many more CPAN modules.
Below you can find the links to the files and the respective Git Hub tags.
