They've decided not to build PPM's for the 58x series unless those PPM's can be run on their earliest 58x release (and without upgrading core modules).
Recent AS releases of 58x have a version of Scalar::Util in core that has refaddr. So any module requiring it will run fine on a recent release from AS. But because refaddr isn't available in the Scalar::Util in the earliest 58x core, any modules that depend on it won't be automatically built into PPMs by AS.
Fortunately, Randy Kobes has been building more recent PPM's at the uwinnipeg repository. Unfortunately, that's a manual process.
