why not ? I did the same for the 64bit missing packages.

I plan to check what really needs to be updated and
if possible update some to 5.30. I would like to avoid
updating packages that are not dependent on the Perl
version and I would like to avoid to make the
changes behind the other maintainers.

A ping pong of mails is not the best way to check a list
of things to be done (IMHO).
