Please, compare apples to apples. If you want to critique RH/Fedora's past packaging policies vs Debian's, fine.
Well said, sir. In my view (as well), people making handwaving claims about merits of these two perfectly serviceable package formats should be gently lead to Joey Hess's indispensible "Comparing Linux/UNIX Binary Package Formats" page, and advised to please make certain their comments are informed ones.
