CPAN not indexing?

dragonchild has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

A quick check on http://www.cpan.org and Googling didn't help - why hasn't CPAN reindexed in the last 3-4 days?

My criteria for good software:
  1. Does it work?
  2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?

    Ask the maintainer(s)?
      An rsync daemon was hung and no monitor for it was set up. Since Friday morning (Central European time) the rsync daemon is running again. A monitor is now watching it, so it will be noticed quicker next time. Sorry for the inconvenience,

    Posting here is less useful than if you had emailed someone. I know it can be daunting to figure out who to email sometimes, but in this case even {cpan,webmaster,ask} at perl.org would have helped.

    Vaguely related: perl.org (and search.cpan.org) infrastructure bits are often noted on the Perl NOC Log.

    - ask
      I waited three days before posting here. I posted here because over half the major players in Perl are here at least once a week. I figured I wasn't the first person to notice it, so someone would be able to tell me what had happened.

      1. Does it work?
      2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?
        I don't come here a lot, so apologies for the belated reply. :-)

        It's fine to post here, obviously. I was just trying to point out that emailing the maintainers of the thing you think is broken is more likely to get attention.

        It's frustrating finding out that something you look after hasn't been working for a minute, an hour a day and doubly so when you find out that other people knew, spent time talking about it but didn't bother to tell you.

        Ask
