I tried to install v1.5.2 using cpan.

My urllist looks like:

cpan[2]> o conf urllist
        0 [ftp://cpan.cs.utah.edu/pub/CPAN/]
        1 [ftp://cpan.mirrors.tds.net/pub/CPAN]
        2 [ftp://ftp.open-bio.org/pub/bioperl/DIST/]
Type 'o conf' to view all configuration items

And when I look for bioperl, I see:

cpan[1]> d /bioperl/
CPAN: Storable loaded ok (v2.16)
Going to read /root/.cpan/Metadata

Distribution    CRAFFI/Bundle-BioPerl-2.1.8.tar.gz

No v 1.5.2.  This may be because it can't see the distribution at 
ftp://ftp.open-bio.org/pub/bioperl/DIST/. When I try to reload the 
index, I get messages saying cpan can't find the files 
ftp://ftp.open-bio.org/pub/bioperl/DIST/authors/01mailrc.txt.gz or 
or ftp://ftp.open-bio.org/pub/bioperl/DIST/modules/03modlist.data.gz.

Am I doing something wrong?
Does the FTP site need to be updated?
