I saw the latest rpmdrake come down when I installed libreoffice.  I may be 
talking from before then.  Still running Mandriva 2010.2 as my regular system 
(although I almost don't need to.)  I assumed that the description was part of 
each package and will take time.  All that I was saying was, that the packages 
have a good pedigree; if anything doesn't work as it should, it won't be the 
packages themselves.  I didn't see the comment from "the guy from Brazil," but 
I will form my own assessment.
