I just got bitten by this for xen.

Where do we want to have pod* scripts?

Should we fix the APKBUILDs to depend on perl-dev to be able to
generate manual pages with pod2man?

Should we have a separate pod* package?

Should we ship those tools with 'perl' like we did earlier?

The commit log does not explain *why* those changes was made in the
first place so I am afraid of just reverting.

Valery, what problem did you try to solve by moving pod* scripts to
-dev?

It would also be great if you could also explain *why* we need
to restore the current compatibility in the commit message for the
"main/perl: restore the current compatibility" patch.

Thanks!
