Introduction

The RPM Development Environment (RPMDE) is used to help RPM-based Linux distribution managers, package managers and testers do their job more quickly and efficiently.

The RPMDE consists of two parts;

1) a front-end interface to manage the distribution

and

2) a back-end build daemon that handles the process of building the RPMs.
