Description Victor Efimov 2013-07-18 09:09:57 UTC
perl-core package has a description "A metapackage which requires all of the perl bits and modules in the upstream tarball from perl.org."

However it's not accurate. It misses CGI.pm

CGI.pm is not listed in dependencies http://pkgs.org/centos-6-rhel-6/centos-rhel-x86_64/perl-core-5.10.1-129.el6.x86_64.rpm.html

And CGI.pm does not get installed after perl-core install

I propose update description for perl-core package and mention that not everything from tarball is installed.
