I believe we are using SvnPubSub for releases - see JIRA INFRA-6707
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-6707

However, I noticed myself that the files at
http://www.apache.org/dist/perl/ do not reflect the changes I have
made in SVN, so I have raised another JIRA regarding this already:
INFRA-7241
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-7241

Yes, we are using SvnPubSub for the website too (see INFRA-7055), but
we still intend to generate the contents of the SVN folder from
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/perl/modperl/docs/trunk like we
always used to, so that's what I've edited so far... I'm just not yet
sure how/where to regenerate the website files from that. A cron job
on people.apache.org used to do it. I think we need to run largely the
same script (but outputting to a different location) and then check
the output into SVN, but I've yet to figure out the details.
