Just to clarify what I meant.

I ,humble user, know of nothing wrong with deb or rpm. AFAIK both work 
just fine when used correctly. But Mageia is as stated a fork of 
Mandriva which is a very well known descendant of Red Hat ergo rpm is 
from the beginning the package management base. I wouldn't have thought 
this to be a matter for discussion. And as Mandriva is my favorite 
GNU/Linux distro I'm more than happy with that. If it ain't broke don't 
fix it. (Doesn't mean you can't tweak it!)

I have learned something though. Late at night I need to be more careful 
about responding to pointless discussions in the first place.

Best wishes to all,
Dwight Paige
