I notice that sort of thing with a lot of packages.  You do a rpm -qi on
them, and the package's homepage is dead, or links to a wrong page on
their site.  It doesn't engender much confidence in using some software
if its website is dead, or hasn't been updated in five years.  One might
think that the RPM building routine might check meta data about the
package web address for 404s, or "no such domain" errors, and prompt for
some human interaction.
