Hi Daniel.
Good to her the upgrade went so well. If you have packaging skills and want 
rpm's you packaged to be included in our repos you can always join our
packaging team ;-)
They offer a mentoring scheme where you will be taught the correct Mageia
spells while doing your packaging and when you mentor thinks you are competent
enough will get you upload rights to the repos. Here is the packaging teams 


Though any of the teams would welcome a hand

he was going to blow them up !
