Hmmm.  The Fedora Core archives seem to be pretty well up to date on
mirror.aarnet.edu.au, mirror.optus.net and mirror.pacific.net.au (as
well as mirror.internode.on.net, for us Internoders).  I realise that
not everyone cares about Fedora, but it does show that at least part of
their mirroring is up to date.

I'm so glad you said that, I thought I must be going mad.  CPAN kept
breaking every time I wanted to install something, and even using the
other mirror (cpan.mirrors.ilisys.com.au) doesn't seem to fix it.  I see
that there's a site mirror.optus.net/CPAN - will try that...

Hoping that the mirroring situation will get sorted out in Australia soon,
