RPMs are just a package not unlike the debs that mdz provides.  I am
sure there is some documentation on the way and if now I will attempt to
write some when I rebuild my box in the future.  The great thing about
them is that like the debs, if you use apt for them, it handles all of
the dependencies for you.  There is no reason to stop making them as it
will only make a larger amount of the public able to use mythtv, which
in my opinion is a good thing.
