Por favor, and si vous plait, keep the FUD on MS mailing lists.

There has been communication about the changes from RPM 3 to RPM 4, and
there seems to be pretty decent documentation of the rpmlib API (IANAH, so I

options.  First, update the software to be able to use the new API.  Second,
downgrade the version of RPM on RH7 to v3, and use the old software.  Later,
