Story part 1: Days ago, I was looking for where to download PDK9.5(doesn't matter), and while I stepped in some page under ActiveState(from search result), I saw something alike mentioning ActivePerl will go free in the future. Because I was in a rush, I only glanced the page for few second (and can't find them again as my browser clear history per close)
Story part 2: Yesterday, I was trying my best luck to install some modules in my very old machine using Perl 5.16 in WinXP, and when I hit on ppm.. I saw the repositories are all updated. I can tell there was something like redirected, 403 sort of before, seem I need a business license to access those repositories, but I could update them again yesterday.
Can somebody tell if the repositories open for free again (for any perl version)?? Since I involved many machines, so I don't sure maybe I saw those redirect 403 from other machine.
