CPAN mirror is out-of-date?

ActiveState's CPAN mirror appears to be out-of-date. I only noticed because CPAN itself complained about it. (You can force CPAN to check by typing "reload index" in the CPAN shell.)

You can visually confirm this by comparing the "recent uploads" listed in the ActiveState mirror (http://ppm.activestate.com/CPAN/modules/01modules.mtime.html) with those in the original CPAN site (http://www.cpan.org/modules/01modules.mtime.html).

Anyone know why AS's mirror would be stale, and who to complain to? Also, any reason why I can't just put http://cpan.perl.org first in the CPAN mirror list ("o conf urllist" in the CPAN shell)?

Thanks!

We replaced some infrastructure. The public access to our CPAN mirror was still pointed at the old system. It's now pointed at the new system, which is up to date.
