My experience:  About an hour a month, with much of that time on periodic
maintenance tasks like checking packages against new Policy versions that
can be done for a bunch of packages at once in a batch.

It may even be less than that, particularly for pure-Perl modules with
infrequent releases.  I could probably maintain 20 or 30 of those without
even noticing the workload.
