Subject patched epm and AOO 4.2.x
Date Fri, 16 Sep 2016 02:20:45 GMT
It looks like, from all I can tell, that except for some formatting
issues (namely, using '_' in filenames instead of '-' in some
cases), all of reasons and issues for using a patched epm
are resolved in epm 4.3... With 4.3, packages are relocatable
and RPM's no longer require --nodep.

Considering that the package/installer in solenv knows about
both patched and unpatched epms, I'd like us to consider baselining
epm 4.3 (unpatched) for 4.2.x and later... It would be nice to
be able to leverage untainted epm.
