Who is the current pmc@ chair for the modperl project?  IMO 
that person should *always* have access to the APML account.

+1, however 99% of CPAN are individually-maintained packages,
so we should take it upon ourselves to reorganize things around 
the ASF.  How about putting a simple LWP script on
that automates the PAUSE upload?  We can also ask infra to set up an 
apml unix group and make the script accessible only to those groupmembers
(thus keeping the APML password protected from non-apml users).
