I'd like to help with (re)packaging mandriva packages which
have not made their way into mageia yet (specifically those
I use myself) and I have no problem to maintain if nobody
else likes to do that ...

I've been building my own packages for mandriva for some time,
and I'm confortable with revisioning systems and creating as
well as maintaining patches, but I'm no rpm expert.

I plan to cleanup and test the following packages for a start:

 - mmv		Move/copy/append/link multiple files
 - gputils	Tools for the Microchip PIC controllers
 - sdcc		Small Device C Compiler

So I'm now looking for a mentor to help with the necessary
steps ...

thanks in advance,
