Well, in cases such as mine, it was not RedHat, but folks who had
made rpm's on their own and sent them in to the ftp site. Perhaps
the RH people are not screening these. I don't know. I've noticed
recently that there have been increasing oddities (such as failing
to install due to lack of "/bin/sh", which obviously exists). Is
Debian better at checking for this, or are the debian users who
create .deb packages doing better?

Sure it is; it just doesn't operate under the suppositions that we
bring from "gai-atsu-driven" 1st-world economies...  ;->

Is it really different from 20.2?
