Please read the archives we already talked about this several times on the ML.

We are using rpm.org for now, and we are happy with this, we are
already working with rpm.org teams and this works pretty nice.

But you can go and help mandriva as they have several problems with rpm5.

In addition, rpm5 ( i hate this name as this makes think rpm5 is a new
version of rpm which isn't true ) is just another rpm and i think that
this is better to stay compatible with the most distributions (
fedora, opensuse, ... ) instead of using rpm5.

This is just my opinion but i would like to not see rpm5 thread again
and again, that start for my part to become boring.
