Linux Like Britney Spears, Jeff Johnson did it again and decided to fork rpm once more. Following a week long outage of the main website, he announced on the Mandriva development mailing list the launch of rpm6.org, without giving much explanation. Without more information, some people speculate this was caused by an intrusive merge by a Mandriva coder without discussing beforehand, while some others speak of the heavy criticism due to the migration, which still causing issues after several months.

I honestly doubt any distro has evolution as a dependency of GNOME. gnome-panel has a dependency on evolution-data-server and e-d-s does not have a dependency on Evolution. It is a generic data store for storing calender info among other things. The name e-d-s is just a historic legacy.
