Yupp. :)

Rpm5 support for current apt also exists already too btw., similar
things can easily be done within short time on most of requests given
or features desired if you'd be interested in adopting it and provided
with help in maintaining and developing it on Mageia if you'd decide
for it. ;)

At least now you know that we'll happily be available to you.  :o)
