Fedora Core "There has been a lot of discussion in the past few months about RPM - its present state, its future plans, and its leadership team. In particular, the Fedora Project has received numerous requests asking us, "what are you guys doing about RPM?" Here is our answer: The Fedora Project is leading the creation of a new community around RPM. One in which the leaders can come from Fedora, from Red Hat, from Novell, from Mandriva, or from anywhere. Job #1 is to take the current RPM codebase and clean it up, and in doing so work with all the other people and groups who rely on RPM to build a first-rate upstream project."

'Cept I'm a command line junkie - for Arch and Slack it's just a tar -xzf to get inside. RPM, I need to use rpm2cpio, and then whatever the heck the cpio inflating tool is.

Not sure about rpm, but with Deb packages you can just use dpkg -c (usually piped through more) or you can extract it with dpkg -x. Dpkg actually supports bzip2 now for it's compression as well as the age old tar.gz.
