comment Why does the alien package converter need root permissions?
When RPM bundles a package, it reads file ownership and permissions and stores them in the archive. You can actually see the ownership and permissions within the archive without installing by doing rpm -qlvp package.rpm. This means that technically you could repackage files from an archive into a different archive (rpm to deb) without ever actually installing on the filesystem. My point is that there has to be another reason why alien doesn't do this (and needs root powers) than what this answer is saying.

comment Why does the alien package converter need root permissions?
It is possible to extract ownership and permission information from file archives, so this answer doesn't really make sense unless we are assuming lazy programming. I'm betting it's simply because package managers are fairly intricate and it's hard to get a "translated" package reliably without allowing a higher level access than normal users have.
