I have seen this both in my lug - interest about linux decrease
strongly, but now seems to have a stable small level and on the LDP
(Linux Documentation Project - I was the leader/coordinator for some
years - who don't see nearly any more interest and become more and
more outof date...

if so the question will very soon: do we keep our rpm heritage or do
we become an other debian clone?

And how would THAT help us? Anyway, I think that packaging format has nothing

against RPM. There are better package formats out there, but deb is not one of
them ;-)

how is red hat living?
