Not everybody is on rpm-maint list and we'd like to hear the wishes of

wished rpm would do for you? What always annoyed you out of your mind?
I don't know if this can be done now, or if at all, and I am not a
developer or even really a packager, so this may be something way out in
left field.

BUT, upon saying all that, is there a way to create, make, or use some
sort of restore point, to get rpm back in shape if a library or
something gets out of wack?


I'm wonder if rpm could rpm -e back to a certain point, then rpm -i
--force all lib packages
A --repackage option exists for a very log time. Life saver, sometimes...
