I think that distro's collaboration is a rather good thing indeed such 
as the AppStream project: http://identi.ca/notice/92041870 However 
Mageia could do with something proper in the distro that makes it unique 
from all or many other distro's, something much more than the control 
centre. That is worth having for many users, if it's going to have a 
much bigger user base. I remember some of the founders had this idea 
before in 2010 or something like that for a future release.
