did a little research to hopefully help a bit, on packages still in the 
( used http://rpmfind.net/linux/ )

> chiliproject
spec says the following rubygems libraries :
  coderay >= 0.9.7 ; but error msg says 1.0.8 installed
  rack >= 1.1.2 ; but error msg says 1.4.5 installed
  rails >= 2.3.14 ; but error msg says 3.2.13 installed
Note that there is a comment somewhere in the documentation that 
chiliproject doesn't work with rail 3.x.

Cauldron has version 2.3.0 (as for mga2),
but upstream is at 2.11.0 or 3.8.0 (both published 2013/03/19)
For 2.x up, there is a module that is supposed to determine the required 
versions.  (see below)

Some upstream pages :

> cross-avr-gcc
"libmgc.so.2 not found"
"libmgc.so" in xfce4-mpc-plugin-0.4.4-2.mga3.i586.html
+  qmmp-musepack-0.5.4-1.mga2.i586.html
+  qmmp-musepack-0.5.4-1.mga2.tainted.i586.html
+  qmmp-0.6.8-1.mga3.i586.html
+  qmmp-0.6.8-1.mga3.tainted.i586.html
But "libmgc.so.2" not found by rpmfind

> mcabber
"libotr.so.2 not found"
in libotr2-3.2.0-5.2.mga2.i586.html

> openstack-glance
package = python-glance
upstream doesn't seem to package even tarballs.
in fedora/updates/18/x86_64/python-glance-2012.2.3-1.fc18.noarch.html
an upgrade will probably correct the 3 version error messages

"pysendfile not found"
in fedora/devel/rawhide/src/p/pysendfile-2.0.0-5.fc19.src.html (not in mga)
site = http://code.google.com/p/pysendfile/

"python-crypto not found"
in fedora/devel/rawhide/src/p/python-crypto-2.6-5.fc19.src.html (not in mga)
site = http://www.pycrypto.org/

"pythonegg(kombu) not found"
Maybe part of newer version of python-glance ?

> openstack-keystone
"pythonegg(sqlalchemy) found with incorrect range == 0.7.10 (needed <= 
newer version in 
( cauldron has 2012.2.1-2 )

> perl-B-C
"perlapi-5.14.2 not found"
It is in CPAN  http://search.cpan.org/dist/B-C

> perl-Task-Dist-Zilla
"perl(Dist::Zilla::PluginBundle::CJM) not found"
according to CPAN, it is a "depreciated module for CJM"
Maybe see jquelin about this ?

> prosody
"/usr/bin/lua not found"
Must be a missing requires, since that is where lua is installed.
(I thought lua was required on mageia ?)

> qutecom
upstream site is no longer accessible
"libavcodec.so.53 not found"
in libavcodec53 in mga2 core + tainted ; missing requires ?

"libavutil.so.51 not found"
in libavutil51 in mga2 ; missing requires ?

"libboost_program_options-mt.so.1.48.0 not found"
in libboost_program_options1.48.0 ; missing requires ?

"libboost_serialization-mt.so.1.48.0 not found"
in libboost_serialization1.48.0 ; missing requires ?

"libboost_signals-mt.so.1.48.0 not found"
in libboost_signals1.48.0 ; missing requires ?

"libboost_thread-mt.so.1.48.0 not found"
in libboost_thread1.48.0 ; missing requires ?

> redmine
"ruby-ruby-debug not found"
in mga1 and mga2, tagged only mga1 ; removed from cauldron ?
