Several short notes:

1) There's a version of rpm-4.0.3 with several important fixes for
	1) --relocate/--prefix relocation problems
	2) parameterized macros segfault
	3) db1 in rpm-4.0.2 segfaults with corrupted data.

Please note that db1 support is gonna be removed from rpm-4.0.3 as
rapidly as I can manage, and that db3 support is going to be
provided by internalizing a copy of Berkeley DB, none of which has
happened yet. Expect changes in rpm-4.0.3 before release.

2) "Maximum RPM" in HTML format is finally packaged at


and available on-line at


Not much has changed (yet), as I'm still trying to figger how to use
docbook macro's efficiently.  However, if you want to help edit or write,
please send patches against a CVS checkout of max-rpm:
	cvs -d :pserver:anonymous на cvs.rpm.org:/cvs/devel login
	(no password, just carriage return)
	cvs -d :pserver:anonymous на cvs.rpm.org:/cvs/devel get max-rpm

3) There's doxygen generated rpmlib API docs for rpm-4.1 available
online at


The doco is still pretty meager, but doxygen does a very nice job adding
cross references to sources.

Almost all of the code from transaction.c down to cpio.c has been rewritten.
I will put test packages on ftp.rpm.org as soon as I can figger what is
likely to be in the next version of rpm.

Please submit bug reports, RFE's, patches, etc as always at
