I never said it wasn't. Indeed lots of articles on foxnews.com are well written and interesting, but they suffer from the same problem this one does. I don't pay LWN because of the great writing style, I pay them because they (usual) write what is correct and lead, instead of mislead.

Except nothing _has_ gone on "behind the scenes". One rpm packager of one minor distro. decided to use a weird fork of rpm, bummer for them. I hope it doesn't fail too badly for their users.

I didn't say LWN should have asked me, or prov/jbj/whoever ... just speak to _someone_. I'm pretty sure if LWN asked any of the Fedora project leaders "is there any question about rpm maintenance" then after they stopped laughing they would have been happy to educate.
