Hi there,

due to excellent work of Paulo Castro <hook@netrio.com.br> kpv
(KPackViewer) is becoming more and more popular. 

KPackViewer is a very simple utility that try to add a little help to 
System Administrators in the task of package administration. It is growing
fast trying to be a useful package viewer, and a useful package extraction
tool with some converting capabilities using Alien.

KPV works with Slackware, RPM (.rpm) (RedHat, SuSE,...) and Debian (.deb) 
Packages but it also works with Zip (.zip), TarGZip (.tar.gz, .tgz, 
.tar.Z), TarBZip2 (.tar.bz2), LHA (.lzh, .lha), GZIP (.Z, .gz) and now
KPV works also with ARJ (.arj) files...

More about KPackViewer can be found on: 

        http://www.momentus.com.br/users/hook/kpackviewer.html

In order to make the communication between developers and users of kpv
easier we have established a kpv mailing list. Initially everyone who
has sent Paulo their email addresses got appended to the distribution
list. 

This is the latest LSM:
