7.6. Perl Package Split

Development related files have been split from Perl and are now available in the perl-devel package. As a temporary exception to the Fedora packaging guidelines, perl requires perl-devel to avoid rebuilding some perl dependent packages late in the development cycle. During the next release cycle of Fedora, maintainers will split up the rest of the dependent packages.
