I'm not sure if "common users" are or aren't supposed to edit the wiki
and since I've actually never edited any wiki I won't try (at least
until I'm told to). But anyway - shouldn't the following part of
http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Perl_Policy be now removed?

'The version of perl 5.8.8 in the core repository does not reflect this

This policy is reflected in the next release of the perl 5.10.0 package
now in the testing repository. Please do not use convert or create new
perl module packages yet until perl 5.10.0-2 is released. 

This policy represents a major change in way Arch handles perl so
expect some rough edges. 

For a draft proposal of a current “perl packaging standard” see instead

As for http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Perl_Package_Guidelines -
that should perhaps be removed completely or at least marked as
obsolete with a link to Perl Policy page?
