As I stated above:

> I do know what to do with rpms in Debian-based distros (there is a converter named Alien) but again is not that simple: the tool is splitted in several rpms, scripts, libraries, config files, etc. that makes difficult to perform a consistent conversion, at least for me (not an expert but also not a noob). Maybe the developers couldn't, or didn't want, to generate a single rpm. Again: productivity, productivity, productivity...
