Fwd: Update of RPM layout
I went through an idea  to lighten the server package.
I tested it, and I found out, I can save about 40MB of space, if I'd move
all Perl utilites to a standalone subpackage.
It would make sense to move them, so the users don't need to install Perl
with the server package.
Especially in technologies like containers (or cloud images) size matters.
It all depends on how often are those utilities  used together with the
server, sice we don't want to displace importatnt scripts.
In case, it would look like a good idea, there is also option to move to
this subpackage other - infrequently used - utilities.
-> Q: Hey, Users and Admins, which utilities do you think are essential
for the server?
It can be solved by soft dependencies, so those utils would be installed
with the server by default.
