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

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.

Just so I'm clear here, it is my understanding that there are no political or legal issues in allowing RPM5 into Fedora. Any other issues technical in origin should probably be taken to the fedora-devel list for further discussion.
