I think it's great that you are migrating packages from Blogdrake to 
Assuming that you follow Mageia policies of course, including what can 
be imported and how, and supporting them afterwards.
We'd all like to see your energies be part of our team :)

As you say, once packages are inside Mageia, they are much much less 
likely to cause things to fail.

I understand that Blogdrake is focused on Mageia.  Or at least, you have 
packages focused on Mageia.
If that is the case, once a package is migrated to Mageia, it would be a 
very good idea to remove it from Blogdrake and support it directly in 
Mageia.  Again, to minimise the chance of problems.

As for fun, personally I think it is more fun if everything works :)

Regards :)
