This needs so further comments: what we (at least I) agreed to is that
at the moment rpm is the most common package format, and it makes sense
that if ISVs want to ship software as a package they are best of doing
so as an rpm, and we'll use alien to get it to install on a dpkg based
We have not agreed that rpm is the end-all of package managers or that
we will switch to using rpm.
