On mandriva forum [1] now was a post about OpenSuSE build system can package 
rpm so they work on different Linux distributions.


"The Build Service can reliably package rpms for not only openSUSE, but also 
recent SLES, CentOS, Fedora, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Ubuntu, Debian and 
Mandriva distributions."

It may not need much more work?

Benefit is that maybe more work could be shared between distributions.

And if other dists could use Mageia packages, it is a way to draw attention ;)

But maybe it slows other progress such as future move to rpm5, general 
installation and build system development?
