That project name is RPM5 (as opposed to RPM).  It is only used by 
Mandriva, according to rpmfind.net

the Wikipedia listing for Fedora lists Update method = Yum (PackageKit),

we have Update method = urpmi (rpmdrake) and Package manager = RPM.
Maybe we should drop the "Update method" item,
and put Package manager = urpmi, rpmdrake (RPM) ?
