There was a news at, it claimed that Novell was going to
concentrate its efforts on RPMv4 development.
"Novell has joined Red Hat in the project, while Mandriva, cAos, and
PLD have decided to work with Johnson's effort." [*]

That's not really true. It's just that there are two branches
of rpm, one stable branch (maintained by Panu) and one development
branch (maintained by Jeff). We need a reliable version, so we

the stable branch.
If you want to experiment with rpm5, feel free to create packages
in the build services.
