Well, since I noticed you ping'ed me on irc, I assume you're asking what
Red Hat's position (or mine, me being the author and all) would be on work
being continued on Maximum RPM.
The reason Maximum RPM was licensed under the OPL without the "substantive
modifications" restriction was precisely to permit this kind of work to be
done on it, so I can't think of a situation in which I (or Red Hat) would
have an issue with what you're doing...
