- i forgot to paste the best part:

"I’m curious about what stance Mageia will take on this though, I’m certainly 
hoping they will adopt our work and allow for us to help them and contribute 
back and forth, if not I fear they’ll miss out on several changes in just 
perl-URPM done recently during rpm5 rewrite, and even more so those planned 
when rpm5 upgrade situtation settles.."
