Re: [Bug 226377] Merge Review: rpm



<cutting everything>

>From a purely technical perspective, I think it boils down to the
following:

1. Does rpm5 use the same database as Fedora's rpm?
   If so, it MUST NOT EVER cause any database operation changes that 
   would in any way affect Fedora's rpm functionality.
   If not, rpm5 must not install system packages into /, only into 
   chroots. Having two, disconnected databases here is not acceptable 
   for the same set of system files.

2. Does rpm5 conflict in any way with Fedora's rpm, either implicitly
   or explicitly? If so, it is not acceptable.

My understanding is that rpm5 uses the same database, and is not fully
db compatible with Fedora's rpm. If that is correct, then we can stop
flaming each other, and simply say no to rpm5.
