I agree 100%. The thing which is missing is "RedCarpet". Without it, it
would be probably almost impossible for most people to get a recent &
working GNOME system.

And I certainly want to do something like this, just didn't find the time
yet to start the thing :-( In my current idea this would be based on a RPM
database separate from the system one (eg in
$GNUSTEP_SYSTEM_ROOT/Library/RPMReceipts ;-) Then some kind of online-update
mechanism would be required (autorpm ?)
