When a new maintainer is added to a module the 06perms.txt file is updated with a certain delay. If, in the meantime, that new author releases a new version of said module, the indexer will assume that the module is unauthorized.
Since every release is indexed twice (once when the tarballs is distributed across the cpan mirrors and once the 02packages.details.txt file is updated) the indexer has to re-evaluate the authorized bit in that second run as well.
This would fix the problems we were experiencing with MooX and Catalyst::Plugin::Static::Simple
