Re: Newer releases seem to be available elsewhere
4.2 is available from rpm.org as well here:
ftp://ftp.rpm.org/pub/rpm/dist/rpm-4.2.x

There are some problems, though:


* No tar distribution; only SRPM.


* The distribution contains 5 MiBs .o files.


* It doesn't compile on RH73.


Btw, the ChangeLog link above is outdated as well. It's a shame that this project is so badly maintained.

It's a shame
It's a shame that one of the coolest OSS tools out there is developed in such closed circles. Hopefully under the Fedora project, development will open up and new releases will be announced here. Also, I hope we get some better documentation that is kept up-to-date (no pun intended).
