Thanks for the good work here! Urxvt working fine now, and running
perl 5.10.0. If all is well I'll give it a signoff in a couple of

Can you perhaps point the rest of us in the right direction as to what
we need to do to packages to make them comply with the new perl
policy? That wiki page looks good (not sure how recent it has been
updated), but is there an easy trick to get modules to install in the
vendor directory? I know I have a few packages that install stuff into
site_perl instead of vendor_perl, and I'm sure others do as well.
