Because I had more interest in the users of rpm on distros (initially) based on
Mandriva Linux, keep in mind that that the 'rpm' package alone doesn't make
up nearly all of it's distro integration (think of in terms of
policies, additional
helper scripts, policies, tools, dependency solver etc.)..

Reason for posting to rpm5.org and not rpm.org is simply because I'm actively
involved in that project and it's where I will do most of my
development directly.

For any new features and ideas (be it from this or in general), it's
usually trivial
to port it across different rpm versions, regardless of originally
being implemented
in rpm 4.9/5.3/4.4/3.14159/x.y.z, and I'd be happy to assist with it
in one direction
or the other. :)

I do believe you guys have an interest in R&D, with ideas and features requests
as well? :)
