I'm not sure we could make one.  When upstream forks (or pseudo-forks
as seems to have happened here), we're going to have to figure out
what to do on a case-by-case basis.

I don't see that any of the basic issues are perl-specific.

Well, I think we should always try to stay well-informed as to the
state of the upstream developers and in good communication with them.
It never hurts to ask them what's up and get their opinions on what we
should be doing with their packages.
