Good presentation, Nice work ... are pictures used inside presentation
your own? Don't they need licensing ? I see this pattern similar to
famous Autotools pdf ;) which is very good.

It would be nice to add a brief description of rpm -q --qf
"[%{fileperm:perms} %{filenames}\n]" <package-name-in-db> or

rpm -qp --qf "[%{fileperm:perms} %{filenames}\n]"
<path/to/binary/file.rpm> and some small queries and then a mention of
rpmls (which is actually a query) or rpm-dev-extract for extracting
rpm content.
