Description of problem:
I'd like RPM to be able to support multiple hosts.  I would suggest as
an initial step that RPM be set to use a central database.  Naturally
I would suggest PostgreSQL, but I don't particularly mind which FOSS
database is chosen.  Long-term, I personally would like to be able to
have something like yum or apt-rpm update multiple hosts based on
cfengine configuration (and downloading from a central repository in
my network to save bandwidth), but obviously none of that can happen
without a centralised database of RPMs.  If RPM itself were to do
this, that would be the optimal solution.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Google "rpm database backend"
2.  Google "rpm multi-host package manager"
3.  Observe that neither of these produce any hits which appear to
supply the requested functionality
4.  Sorry about this, the form won't let me submit without it
5.  ???
6.  Profit!!!

Up2date has much of this functionality already.

Otherwise, this is more of a dependency solver than rpm
issue. FOr example, there is no reason why yum could not
be taught to access databases on multiple hosts.
