RPM meta-data are embedded into it.
Repositories will also embed some sort of meta-data indexing. In your
case, see files in
http://www.apache.org/dist/incubator/bigtop/bigtop-0.3.0-incubating/repos/fedora16/repodata/

If the RPM you want to inspect is already installed, you can use
commandes such as "rpm -i <PKG NAME>" or yum (for CentOS/RedHat/Fedora)
or zypper commands.

Usually packages ship also NOTICE and LICENSE file in the doc dir.
So depending on your system, once a apckage installed, you can find such
a file in /usr/share/doc/<PKG_NAME>/ or
/usr/share/doc/<PKG_NAME>-<PKG_VERSION>/
If you can't find it for a given package, I would recommend to open a
ticket.

Thanks,
Bruno
