rpm.org case is even worse. Original maintainer still develops rpm - at this
moment version 4.4.7 at http://wraptastic.org/ (while rpm.org starts from
older 4.4.2 codebase), there is active mailing list, so we have two running
projects with the same name which is bad thing and will cause confusion.

I hope that there will be one util-linux and one rpm project.
