in reply to getting Log::Log4perl to install on windows strawberry perl

Its been logged in the CPAN RT: https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=120926#txn-1717278

I was going to summarize the issue but I just read through the ticket again and I'm not sure I understand it yet, so I'll leave you to parse it. A non technical summary is it looks like Log::Log4perl lost its maintainer.

I'm guessing we need a couple utilities at the perl infrastructure level: One to "fork" a cpan dist in to github (for dists that aren't on github, but L4P already is), and then an update to cpan/cpanm to get it to prefer where to get a specific dist from.
