It's not "not using rpm at all for any web apps". I think we can use RPM
packages when it's more convenient. In some cases such as epoll, it can
be more convenient to use an RPM. But not in all cases. I think it
depends on the application, and how we use it.

For the main mageia.org website for instance, do we want to use a
package that we will have to update, rebuild, and ask an admin to
install it, each time someone in the web team wants to fix a typo ?
