Default Update Error :: system-tools-backends: requires perl>=5.12.1

Guys,

My attempt at upgrade failed this evening due to the following perl dependency:

23:50 archangel:~> pmsu
:: Synchronizing package databases...
kdemod-legacy is up to date
core 35.5K 108.0K/s 00:00:00

warning: cannot resolve "perl>=5.12.1", a dependency of "system-tools-backends"
:: the following package(s) cannot be upgraded due to unresolvable dependencies:
system-tools-backends

Do you want to skip the above package(s) for this upgrade? [y/N]
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: system-tools-backends: requires perl>=5.12.1
23:51 archangel:~> pms perl

core is up to date

archlinuxfr is up to date

there is nothing to do


This doesn't make since as there are no perl>=5.12.1 in any of the active
repositories. If system-tools-backends us in 'community' then should its
dependencies also be available?

It is in [testing] which you require to activate if you use
[community-testing].
