Please note the __ABSENCE__ of moderator approval for the posting  
not only the feasibility, but also the sanity, of RPM "package  
bundles" that I
referred to.

I prefer to demonstrate the feasibility (and sanity) of RPM package  
bundles rather
than discuss moderation. However, it does seem rather ironic that my  
reply to an
RFE from <rpm-list at> here
and a bugzilla RFE here
-- both of which are quite clearly filed against the  
implementation --
has qualified me for moderation because I included a URI to suggested
solutions posted to another list. Whatever ...

But there is no need to actually solve any remaining flaws to  
that "package bundles" are both feasible and sane, the existing  
implementation can/will produce and install "package bundles" quite  
nicely AFAIK.

To demonstrate that point, I will produce a "package bundle" of  
and use rpm-4.6.0 to install the "package bundle", in order to show that
indeed, rpm-4.6.0 "package bundles" are feasible and sane.

I will post a pointer to the rpm-4.6.0 "package bundles" when done and  
report an
issues or problems with rpm-4.6.0 installing rpm-4.6.0 "package  
bundles" to the rpm-4.6.0
<rpm-list at> "General discussion about the RPM package manager"  
list in case other rpm-4.6.0 users are interested in using rpm-4.6.0 to
produce rpm-4.6.0 "package bundles".

Subject to moderator approval of course.
