the main motivation behind this is metacpan. It relies on the 02package.details.txt file to provide which modules are considered 'latest'. Currently, the generation of this file lags behind because it's generated once an hour. This patch will regenerate this file (and others) with every upload to pause. This has benefits for the whole cpan toolchain as well. Command line tools like `cpan` will be able to install versions of recently uploaded releases immediately (after getting the up-to-date 02packages file). I'm aware of the fact that this will put some additional load on the box and requires more bandwidth for rrr mirrors. But considering the pro and cons, I think it's worth it.
