== Detailed description ==
Fedora packages store URL to the upstream web page and URL to the
source archive location in their metadata. Most of the Perl packages

update the metadata to point to the new location.
Specification for all Perl packages will be updated like this:
This change will be pushed as one commit into each affected Perl
package without increasing its release number. We will try to do this
change before Perl 5.28 mass rebuild in order to have it visible in
Fedora 29 binary repositories.
