Who maintains RPM?

Well Debian does support installing RPM packages, though, through the alien stuff.
As you see in the wajig list-command output it has a couple (somewhat redundant) commands for handling rpm format.
So I figure that Debian-based systems should support it also, even if it's not in a official capacity.
For ISVs then it would make sense to target RPM for packages. Debian supports it, Debian-based systems should support it, but Redhat and such don't support Deb packages.
What is left is just making it sane to use in non-native-rpm systems for the average end user.. if a thing is ever possible. (which I have no idea about)
