As a followup to my earlier posting regarding RPM file format.  The LSB
Specification Authority has been working on rewording the requirements.

Here is the new wording that has just been drafted.

"Applications shall either be packaged in the RPM packaging format as
defined in this specification, or supply an installer which is LSB
conforming (for example, calls LSB ABIs and commands)."

"Distributions shall provide a mechanism for installing applications in
this (RPM) packaging format with some restrictions listed below."
