I *hope* so. But contrary to a company with a multi-million value
estimation and hundreds of employees ATrpms can't even guarantee that
it will exist in 7 years!

But to rephrase the question: "Will ATrpms support RHEL/CentOS rpm at
least as long as it support Fedora?": Certainly yes. You will be on
the safe side with RHEL/CentOS.

The only reason not to go RHEL/CentOs is if in say two years or so a
great-new-cature-card only works on kernel 2.6.25-35 and won't be
combatible to RHEL/CentOS' 2.6.18 base. But then one can start
thinking about upgrading to RHEL6, which will be based on 2.6.27 :)
