Hi all:

I've got some questions:
1. Which rpm5 should we consider ?
I see that the website still mentioned 5.3.6 as stable, and 5.3.7 as
testing, though 5.3.11 was released a few days ago.

This is just a case of the website not being updated ?

2. What are the plans for rpm 5.4 ?
Is this what will be the next development branch ? Would it be fine
for the Belenix team to stick to rpm 5.3.11 for the next three months
while we get other stuff sorted out and to then move to 5.4 (or
newer), or should we look at that right now ?

3. What is the reality about rpm6 ?
I was trying to figure out how to initialize an rpmdb and I searched
for "mandriva rpm5" and I ended up at some pages that are talking
about rpm6.org.
I checked and saw that rpm6.org gets us back to rpm5.org.
What's the real news, and what are the community directions ? I've not
seen any discussion around this on the rpm5 mailing lists.
