These packages place module files into vendor_perl while the package

And lastly, two packages put files in site_perl which should not happen
for official packages, so that should be corrected anyway:
The last two sets of packages involve Mark O'Keefe,
Ken Brown, Adam Dinwoodie, Marco, David Rothenberger, Jari Aalto, Andrew
Schulman and Yaakov again.
Since the move of all packages into the release should happen at the
same time, I think we need to do something slightly different this time
around: I propose that instead of posting a !ready cookie a !perl cookie
is used instead (I hopa that would not create problems with upset).
Then a maintainer with full ssh access can flip those cookies over to
!ready between two scans so that all packages get moved at the same
time. Would that work for everybody?
I will prefer to upload as test any perl 5.22 package.
Updating the setup.hint will immediately move all the
packages at the same time.
