Linux At its 10th anniversary and after a period of uncertainty for the RPM community, together with a new roadmap towards version 5.0 the project environment of the popular Unix software packaging tool RPM Package Manager was relaunched under the domain rpm5.org by the newly formed RPM project team, further on lead by RPM's primary developer Jeff Johnson. The primary goals of RPM 5.0 are the additional support for the XML based archiving format XAR, an integrated package dependency resolver, further improved portability and extended cross-platform support. Note: Please note that rpm5 is a fork of the 'real' rpm project.

'I too am puzzled by this. It seems that indeed http://www.rpm.org/ and http://www.rpm5.org/ are different teams, and the former seems not to be aware of the latter.'

This is a fork of rpm, by the former maintain of rpm.
