Are we ready to consider a brand new RPM version for F11, amidst all this

We just put out first rpm 4.7.0 beta: http://lists.rpm.org/pipermail/rpm-announce/2009-February/000016.html. This is nothing like the 4.4.2.x -> 4.6.0 leap-of-faith upgrade last year but it's still non-trivial amount of changes to get the kind of memory use and performance improvements that 4.7.0 has, which is why it's not just 4.6.1.

The wording of Fedora Feature policy pretty explicitly singles out each RPM upgrade to be a Feature... I would like to hear a preliminary opinion on it: if everybody is going to be an outright "NO!" then I'm not going to waste my time with writing up a Feature page. If it's "maybe" or "it depends" then ok, will submit as a feature in time for tomorrows FESCo meeting.

So, should I bother with a RPM 4.7 feature page or not?

F12 maybe?

It sure does offer some noticeable improvements, can't let F12 have everything!
