Everything from that pool with the exception of libwww-perl was pushed
into unstable last night.  libwww-perl was omitted by request of Joey,
who made the NMU:

   "I've uploaded libwww-perl since a lot of stuff needed it, but it
    fails some regression tests and should be kept out of the main
    archive, please."

The current version fails one test.  There is a newer version (5.65)
available upstream which appears to build cleanly; the changelog reads:

    Make HTTP::Date compatible with perl 5.8.

Entrirely possible.  In any case that staging repository is now gone.
