Well interesting...I did some editing of versionrc and now I get that an
update does not exist  after pulling off the pkgfmt=rpm requirement.
However, we can not expect users of existing product to go messing with
their existing setups (i.e. editing files). I don't mind the odd message I
was getting before about an "rpm" package not being found.

I'm just wondering if there's some way to configure the snippet you sent to
just do something a bit more friendly for all possible situations that are
currently out there now.

Thoughts? Any experts on how to create a generic null feed?
