I have the right to respond to a posting identified by "AdamW" yes.

AdamW has no right to use my name familiarly.

I -really- don't get you.
Do you really believe that posting threatening messages on open (or closed) forums will get your RPM fork accepted into Fedora/SUSE/Mandriva/etc?

You do understand how it makes you look, right?

There's a bit more to rpm-5.0 than links to kuroshin and
bugzilla #119185. The issues are several years old if
you bothered to look at times and dates.

Why do you think I care what rpm version Fedora, SuSE, Mandriva
or any other vendor distribution uses? rpm5.org is now a full fledged,
vendor neutral, OSS project. That was never the case when I worked
@redhat.com, and (if you look at the membership and roadmaps
at the"official" rpm.org site) is very much not the case now.

For those interested in the differences between rpm.org and rpm5.org,
I again point to the rationale behind OpenPKG's decision to assist
setting up infrastructure for rpm5.org:

I'm pretty sure using your name familiarly is not against the law anywhere.
