Ok, now I'm reconsidering this.
I've done a compile of Chart for ActiveState 5.8.3 (build 809), which is the only module I couldn't find in either the Apache or ActiveState repositories.  However, I've discovered that ActiveState doens't have a policy for accepting user submitted PPMs, and it doesn't appear that Apache does either.
I don't mind submitting the PPDs, but somebody needs to set up some space on the bugzilla site to host them.
