Access to ActivePerl 5.10 MSWin32-x86 package repository is forbidden.
$wget http://ppm4.activestate.com/MSWin32-x86/5.10/1006/package.xml
--16:19:07-- http://ppm4.activestate.com/MSWin32-x86/5.10/1006/package.xml
=> `package.xml.1'

http://ppm4.activestate.com/ seems to indicate that the only repositories available from ActiveState for Windows is 5.10 MSWin32-x64.
But this repository is missing one mandatory package for me : DBD-Oracle which was available for 5.10 MSWin32-x86.
Doesn't DB connectivity look important to ActivePerl maintainers?

Seems there is also very few activity on this forum.
So I don't expect very much from this post and am thinking that I may have been wrong thinking that ActivePerl was the best choice of a perl distrib...

I also have just noticed the same issue, except URL I have is: http://ppm4.activestate.com/MSWin32-x86/5.10/1007/package.xml. Does anyone know who to contact about this problem? It was working just a few days ago.

I had the same problem on March 16th. Tried again today - and it works.
