> If you'll think about it it's minor nitpick. I mean: sure enough .rpm or .deb is not executable. Yet both have pre- and post- install scripts. Isn't it the same thing ?
No it is not. With .deb and .rpm, you can inspect the pre- and post- install scripts before deciding to install the package. You can also decide to extract the data without running the scripts.
You cannot do that in a documented way with the current autopackage format.
