I've had some discussions with OpenSuSE gyus at the FrOSCon in Bonn last 
month. We were talking about using OBS for the German mandriva community repo.
OBS sounds like a good idea, but: They do only have the Mdv main repos 
included. Asked about it on the mailing list, one guy from Novell/OpenSuSE 
told me, they can't add contrib and non-free for legal reasons.
As to the question, what legal reasons would exclude contrib he didn't answer 
any more. Fred Crozat toldhim, that there is no legal difference between main 
and contrib but he didn't answer.

This should be kept in mind.
