That has been a problem for Mandrake with Thac repo, a problem for
Mandriva with MIB repo... and sometimes it took a long (wasted) time to
understand that a reported bug was induced by something imported from
third repo.
NB plf repo was something else : mandriva devs worked on it !
 I don't like such repos either and i hope that paid people fix things
in our

That reminds me a big controversy in Debian community some years ago...
