Question about LGPL license for RPM package.

I am neither a lawyer nor a RPM developer, so keep that in mind as you
read my answer.

My understanding is that you want to distribute an RPM package of
proprietary software, that is legally acceptable. For example, Skype
distributes RPMs of their software and it is most assuredly

The issue of RPM's license only comes into play if you are
distributing RPM itself or any changes to RPM.

I hope this helps!
