rpm will be released through Fedora very soon now.

The "RedHat package manager" and the "RPM package manager" were quietly
forked by me in early June.

Mostly I can tell you just one thing: I'm looking forward to divergent
functionality in 2 variant rpm implementations about as much as I'm
expecting to stick a fork in my eye-ball.

Translation: You can expect the {RedHat|RPM} package manager to interoperate
smootly to the greatest extent possible.

Otherwise, I have no idea what all this means, I'm still pretty much
making it up as I go along.

I will have a more complete announcement on <rpm-list redhat com> as soon
as I get a chance to write.

Not that any of this should matter much to anyone, there's only me developing
rpm, and I expact and plan on continuing to do so.
