Hi, Alexandra,

Okay, IC.

As I don't know the exact RPM contents (using self-compiled and Debian
over here), I can only guess, but I think, as I already wrote, that
"utils" are the client-side command line utilities and "jdbc2" is the
Java Driver extension.

> Could you explain me why are the "filter-requires-perl-Pg.sh" and

I think this question has to be answered by those people maintaining the
RPM packaging, I've no idea.
