I don't really give a damn about which rpm version or not, I'm asking
for R&D purposes
and with the idea of it being of interest and use to others.

With much of work of mine that's already in use wrt. rpm on mageia (be
it something ported
from rpm5, written independent of either specific project or not++), I
don't see why this has to
be made into another boring discussion about rpm5 vs rpm.org.

The thought was is to attempt some better collaboration, be it around
just simply exchanging
ideas or more specific about implementation details.

It's still rpm and it's still of relevance, why make it into something else?
