i'd rather have no separated core repository. it's really not funny to
fail some builds in core because of deps in contrib: understanding why
the build fails, requesting the move to main, waiting for someone with
move powers to act, waiting for hdlist to be rebuilt and finally,
finally resubmit the job... -ENOFUN!

now, i guess this will also depend of the support policy we decide for
mageia. but i'd really, really like *not* to split main & contrib (or
whatever their names are).
