When I go on the rpm5 website I see the release are now given in src.rpm format.
Indeed, the last rpm release using the .tar.gz format is rpm-5.3.5.
The tar.gz format is a common archive type easy to extract on many operating systems.
Can you tell me why you chose to release into this format only?
Can you tell me how I can extract it?

Thank you.
