Hey Folks-- Here is a set of tools that will make dealing with RPMs a bit


rpm_utils 0.5

        - merge multiple directories containing various versions of RPMs in to on
          directory that has symlinks to the most up to date version of each
          package. (merge_rpms.py)

        - install packages based on name, and have all of the dependencies installed
          automatically (rpm_install.py)

        - update all of the RPMs on a system (do_update.py)

        - great examples of using various features in the python rpm module
