I've noticed. As a long-time apt-rpm user, I think it's great to have you 
working on RPM itself. You managed to resurrect apt-rpm at a time where people 
were giving up on it and implement the 2 most-requested features (multilib and 
repomd support), the latter also making the issue of repos dropping support for 
it irrelevant. :-) And now you and Paul are resurrecting the RPM upstream 
project and cleaning up the huge mountain of bitrot which had formed, and I've 
noticed you're also working on fixing longstanding annoying bugs like "provides 
as obsoletes" (already fixed for 4.4.2.1) and "uninstalling multilib package 
erases files" (fix under discussion). I'd really like to thank you for picking 
up that thankless job and also for all the work you're doing on the apt-rpm 
project (looking forward to a stable release with sqlite repomd support), you 
really deserve those thanks!
