Why is module list so out of date?

  1. Does anyone know why http://cpan.org/modules/00modlist.long.html is so far
    out of date?

    I'm not sure why this particular list is behind, but CPAN.pm
    uses $CPAN/modules/02packages.details.txt.gz and
    $CPAN/modules/03modlist.data.gz, which are regularly
    updated.
