Symfony should be fine too, no ? It's" quick, basic and square, built from the 
data model" :)

As I just wrote on the -dev ML, I would have liked to help on this task 
because we already have a database full with packages, will synchronize the 
list of packages regularly from the mirrors (which the maintainers' db will 
have to do too), and so adding maintainership stuff would be easy and avoid 
effort duplication (and I'm sure we can have a coherent interface for both the 
main goals of mageia-app-db and the maintainers database). However, as the 
deadline is probably very short, I didn't (and I was late on the corresponding 
thread too and Kosmas already stepped in).

However, it's still possible to work from the mageia-app-db basis if someone 
wants to, I'll be glad to help. Version 0.1 of mageia-app-db is due in 3 days, 
if needed version 0.2 could be dedicated to maintainership management.
