Jaco <address@hidden> described the package as follows:
License: gpl
Other License: 
Package: GNU/Linux via RPM
System name: rvl
This package wants to apply for inclusion in the GNU project

GNU/Linux via RPM: This project is a full from the ground implementation of a 
basic GNU/Linux distribution. The project is based on the (GNU/)Linux From 
Scratch project at but instead of providing a 
book to do the bootstrap and basic system installs, it provides RPM spec files 
for both the bootstrap system and the basic system which is used to compile the 
system from scratch.

The project is aimed at people wishing to create their own RPM-based GNU/Linux 
system from the ground-up. Development of the RPM specs for the system is 
completely open as opposed to commercial RPM distributions. Distribution of 
packages are done via RPM spec files and .tar.bz2 sources, instead of 
pre-compiled binaries. 

Close matches for the project can be found in Sorcerer, Gentoo and other from 
source distributions altough LvR is aimed at creating an bootstrap system first 
- allowing you to understand your system to a greater extent.

It already exists and you can see it at
