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.

The article you reference seems so trollish that I can't rely on it. can you paste the full output of apt-get remove evolution? I suspect what has happened in this case is that Debian and Ubuntu use meta packages to install evolution and the author of the article is getting confused by it. In any case, this has nothing in particular to do with the packaging format.
