Hmm, two things, actually three:
1) I'd never use Mandriva on a server, because of the short support
period, a server OS requires at least 4-5 years support lifecycles
(I'm not talking about MES here, just the normal Mandriva variants)
2) from my experience "urpmi --auto-select" does that anyway, it doesn't
seem to differentiate between updates and backports (unlike drakrpm that
correctly ignores backports when checking for updates)
3) I mentioned earlier that the packager would need to use good
judgement and not include major incompatible version changes
