Due to lack of time, I haven't been able to be involved in the packaging 
meetings up to now. However, now that I have fixed the most pressing issues in 
CatDap, I would like to get some of my Mandriva packages into Mageia.

However, I haven't seen an authoritative indication of what software should go 
into which repository. If there is only to be one 'core' repository, and all 
main+contrib should go there, then I will look at uploading heimdal (and 
various other packages) there.

However, that brings up some other questions. Which Kerberos implementation 
are we going to use as the "default" ? Heimdal has some interesting features 
(I think especially of the kcm Kerberos credential manager, allowing multiple 
tickets, and a patch for Openssh to allow specification of which ticket to use 
for which hosts in ~/.ssh/config).
