I would like to raise the issue of pitfalls in defining RPM as the
"mandated" packaging system for the LSB. Although I will concede that

Can this be avoided by an investigation a standardization effort in the
packaging community itself? For example, can we bring representatives
from the different packaging application developers to a single forum to
discuss a method of sharing a common "packing accounting system" ??
