[Mageia-discuss] rpm or deb?

Hi list,

IMO, I don't care to use deb, rpm or even .mag(eia).  What I care is to have a 
fast-enough updates for software packages.

I used to run some web sites.  One web site ran on CentOS (which was installed 
by the host manager).  Then I found that it was not easy to upgrade my PHP to 
5.2 because there was no such update on its official repositary.  Now the same 
web site is running on debian, but the condition is similar.  I need to find a 
3rd party repositary for PHP 5.3.  For some other web sites or servers running 
Mandriva it does not have such problems.  That's one of the main reason why I 
am stuck on the Mandriva now.

So, being rpm or deb is not an issue for me.   I just hope to have good-
quality and fast-enough repositary updates, especially for KDE, PHP, python, 
... etc.
