I think that this is the best way, as we can focus on what we offer in 
Mageia first.
mageia-app-db (still under heavy development) already tries to be a 
central point for all Mageia package info, as well as for sources of 
non-Mageia packages (using the sofie database).
So using mageia-app-db for equivalences is a natural extension.
