You can not even doubt that we must use packet types, the MCC is
designed to use and manage RPRDRAKE such packages. To change should
start from the ground, at least I guess. The advantages of RPR on the
DEB packages are not obvious but they exist and why many users prefer.
My apologies to those who think differently but almost absurd to
discuss this as the heart of this distro are RPM packages, its ease of
use and installation.
