What (if anything) do people use to generate web pages based on the  
contents of RPM files? I mean something like the results pages of  
rpmfind.net. I've looked at rpm2html (which is what rpmfind uses) and  
it would be ok if I wanted my web pages to look like something from  

My preferred solution would be along the lines of a  
Template::Plugin::RPM, but that doesn't seem to exist yet. I'm happy  
to write it, but there doesn't seem to be an RPM module on CPAN to  
build it on. The Perl-RPM distribution[1] seems rather old and I can't  
get it to build with an up to date version of rpmlib.

Sooo... any recommendations would be appreciated. Doesn't need to be  
Perl, but it does need to include some kind of templating.

In the meantime, there I have some CPAN RPMs available at  
http://rpm.mag-sol.com/. These are strictly on a "it works on my FC5  
system - you're on your own" basis.
