The Perl packaging guidelines are big on the need to filter provides
and requires using some complex shell scripting:


I'm reviewing some Perl packages which don't do this.  Furthermore I
grabbed 10 approved Perl specfiles from CVS and only 2 of them
(perl-Catalyst-Plugin-Static-Simple and perl-Class-MOP) actually did

So is this packaging requirement real?

virt-top is 'top' for virtual machines.  Tiny program with many
powerful monitoring features, net stats, disk stats, logging, etc.
