Oh, this is not the only most important part, in my opinion...

Also very interesting & instructive, and worthy of careful reading are the comments, especially proyvind's eye-opener.

Per's on fire! :shock: I'm impressed with all the work on rpm, all the complexity. I'd like to believe Mandriva, along with new, improved rpm and urpmi, will rise from the ashes, again. Ho, ho, ho. :)
