The update to rpm5 looks promising . With plenty of help and guidance from jbj over @ http://rpm5.org/ as well as Anders F Björklund we now got an rpm5 version that will allow us a rather smooth transition period.
I’ve got a working rpm5 version now that is almost a drop in replacement to rpm4 . While it works rather nicely on the desktop there are still kinks to be sorted in the buildsystem. Until I’ve got the confidence it will _NOT_ break our infrastructure and prevent us from pushing out those 500 pending updates I’ll hold off on rpm5 and will focus on testing to make sure this will indeed be a smooth experience.
So bear with me and after the weekend we should have loads of shiny updates.
