PyRPM is an experimental project to look at rpm package management. It is a python module and a collection of scripts that provide similar functionality as rpm, yum and co. It is written from ground up and is implemented only in python. PyRPM project mainly deals with rpm packages, the rpm database rpmdb in /var/lib/rpm, comps.xml files and yum repositories (called repo data). The reason for this project was to have a codebase with which we can test and verify rpm, rpmdb and yum itself and experiment with new features and implementations very quickly. Python is Red Hats in-house defacto standard, so using python to do rapid prototyping was only logical. The code itself is still very small and modular. Were constantly looking to improve the code, make it more production ready and remove duplicate functionality. Results from this project back to rpm and co are very important for us to improve the current available Linux tools and not rush with only adding another project for this. Next to working on good algorithms and sane implementations, most code is backed up with verify and testing scripts. Warning The PyRPM project is by no means meant to be a full replacement of rpm or yum. In its current state we feel confident that in general it wont break anything, but the code isnt production quality yet. The check scripts can be safely used as they wont modify anything on your system, so feel free to use them at your convenience. We personally have been using the yum replacement very extensively and even used it to update our own systems, but thats not even remotely a guarantee that it will work on your machine. It has only been run by a few people until now. Using it to set up buildroots on the other hand should be very safe as this all happens in a very contained environment (sandbox principle). Please let us know of any problems you encounter, if possible with some reproducible test cases so we can figure out what might have happened..
