Fedora Daily Package

Chris Tyler just announced a blog for a daily review of Fedora packages from the default repositories. Some sort like Debian package of the day

https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-list/2007-April/msg00103.html

Site URL: http://dailypackage.fedorabook.com

The Fedora Daily Package is an unofficial daily guide to some of the
interesting and useful packages in Fedora which installed by default. A
new package is featured each Weekday according to daily themes, except
for Wednesday, when the site features an in-depth look at a Fedora
packaging or configuration detail.

This is a fun and easy way to learn about new packages that you may have
never heard about! The Fedora daily Package is at
http://dailypackage.fedorabook.com (Atom and RSS feeds are available).

One interesting post I saw on the site is the RPM rollback capability. RPM can repackage the files installed in the computer into a .rpm file - with the new configs etc intact. Now, thats something new to me. I had never known that RPM can do such thing.
