Repositary data specific for each distro

Hi all,

Back in 2008 there was this post:
[opensuse-buildservice] Repositary data specific for each distro](

I recently pacakged GNUmed (WebHome < Gnumed < TWiki) on obs and the repo seems
to be in yum format.

That means Mandriva users have to install a second package manager (i.e.
smart) that understands that format.

Please consider providing the Mandriva native metadata so the repository can
be added to the default Mandriva package manager.

For this to happen the metadata is created like this:

genhdlist2 --xml-info /path/to/your/repo

Then any mandriva user can integrete your repo with

urpmi.addmedia GnuMed
with media_info/

This is a major usability enhancement and could lead to more widespread use of OBS by Mandriva developers and users.

Any help is appreciated,
Sebastian Hilbert
