Yeah seems I made a thorough mess of it :-/

Should be all fixed now, including a bunch of (older) tags in wrong 
format and wrong dates, release notes removed from GH (because the 
official ones are on rpm.org and there's no way I'm doing the work 
twice). Also added a fake "release" on GH to point people to the right 
direction (rpm.org and ftp.rpm.org).

Thanks for pointing this out,
