Re: RPM roadmapping



I'm not sure if this really has to do with RPM, but I'll put it out
subject to correction:

Is there currently any way for the end user to get a summary of what
the install scripts of an RPM actually do?

For example, is there any way to know that the mysql-server package:
 * installs the mysql server, all necessary files, and helper applications
 * installs basic documentation
 * setups basic configuration
 * setups mysql server for manual startup
 * needs to have mysql admin password setup manually

Nothing to wordy, but something that a user could choose to view post
install (or maybe even pre) so they have a better idea of what's going
on.
