Description Ville Skyttä 2006-01-16 15:18:37 EST
rpm-build's autodeps stuff for perl may and does pretty often emit "Provides:
perl(main)", which serves no purpose.

The "main" package is always implicitly present in perl, and no packages can do
"use main" or "require main" in perl code, so no such Requires should be present
anywhere and filtering the provides should be safe.
