my RPM
will be in charge of creating the initial database.

huh, good luck with that :)

And that is less
doable for the "DB in other host" approach because it would require
asking some questions to the user 'a-la wizard' in the moment of RPM
installation, and IIRC this is not supported, right?


(The only system
I've seen that asks you configuration questions when installing packages
is apt-get.)

do you mean debconf right ?

But, as I've explained my targets above, my ideal RPM would consist of
one that obligues you to install one of these packages as a strong

a) mysql
b) posgresql

And, if (a) is selected, also have a sub-dependency to perl-DBD-mysql.
If (b) is selected, have a sub-dependency to perl-DBD-Pg.

Is that doable with current RPM technology and/or OpenSuseBuildService?

according to my knowledge, no, you cant.
