If you mean the perl-after-upgrade script, I think it was mentioned in
UPDATING when it first came out.  That was in June of 2005, I believe.

It was mentioned again in UPDATING when there was another major perl
version bump.   

It worked quite well for me both times.  Actually, I was so impressed
that I wrote its creator a thank you email.

Buffy: I told you. I said end of the world. And you're like, 
'Pooh-pooh, Southern California, pooh-pooh.' 
Giles: I'm so very sorry. My contrition completely dwarfs the 
impending apocalypse.
