Subject RE: [patch] add rpm in the archive names

An alternative for patches that one is hesitant/unable to commit is to submit them with an
issue on the now-live issue tracker at

We should be using this bug tracker heavily now.  It is the best way to place material where
it will be seen and reviewed without being buried in the ooo-dev list.

Under Linux, when we create .deb files, the download archive name  
contains "_deb", avoiding confusion.  It was not the case for .rpm  
rchive type, and lot of people download .rpm and discover later they  
need .deb.

Since I don't know whether we can commit or not, I prefered provide a  
patch who fixes the problem.
