Thanks. I read this thread previously but not everyone reads the sysadmin 
mailing list and I wasn't sure those were the changes the update covers.

However, I still think that a real announce on the thread would be useful, 
explaining the new repo structure, and what it changes to our daily tasks (and 
what doesn't change. Currently we can only guess). For example, I don't know 
if it changes the way to send new sources to Mageia 1 updates. Ideally we 
would have got such a mail before the change :)

Best regards
