As there is some discussion about the package-count let me explain the

Contains low-level utilities which use the linux-vserver kernel API
directly. Most of them do not know util-vserver's idea of "vservers"
(cfg-directory + chroot) at all.

This package is very lightweighted and has nearly no dependencies so
that it can be used in guest-systems also.

This is used to operate existing vservers (starting/stopping). It uses
my idea about "vservers" and has moderate dependencies.

> util-vserver-lib-0.30.196

Shared libraries; should be self-explaining

> util-vserver-devel-0.30.196

devel-files; adds a dependency on pkgconfig

> util-vserver-sysv-0.30.196

SysV initscripts; because:

* I do not like SysV init
* they introduce additional, ugly dependencies (the 'initscripts'
  package on Fedora)

they are packaged separately.

> util-vserver-build-0.30.196

This contains tools about the creation of vservers. It has complicated
dependencies (rpm, apt-get) which might be unwanted.

> util-vserver-legacy-0.30.196

The legacy-tools...
