[Mageia-dev] [ANN] Mageia-release upload and urpmi breakage

as we have uploaded the new version of mageia-release, some of you may
have seen that urpmi sources have been changed to use 
distrib/1/ instead of distrib/cauldron/ , especially if you didn't touch
to the default configuration.

Not all mirrors are in sync, and in fact, most are not proposing the
stable release yet ( especially the main mirror ), as we are still
working on it.

So urpmi is likely broken for most testers that updated in the last

So if you are affected, you can either 
1) wait until everything is working ( likely tomorrow )

2) drop all sources and add again the cauldron one by hand
( urpmi.addmedia --distrib + url )

3) change /etc/mageia-release by hand, replace "1" by "cauldron"

If you are not affected, just refrain from updating mageia-release until
we finish the work on the mirrors.

Things should be working fine once the release is out, so have no fear. 
As we are busy, do not hesitate to forward for us the mail on forums,
identica, others ml, and direct people who have question on -dev.
