Linux Like Britney Spears, Jeff Johnson did it again and decided to fork rpm once more. Following a week long outage of the main website, he announced on the Mandriva development mailing list the launch of rpm6.org, without giving much explanation.

checkinstall works just fine for RPM's too however as with deb files, handcrafted ones are usually way better.
