Unity != Mandriva

The problem for Unity was that smart doesn't support it, nor does createrepo
(i'm guessing)

A courtesy response is nice otherwise it feels like we are just getting
ignored for the better, more well planned mother project. It seems testing
and error report checking are a big todo there too!

I can't think of another project that has used and deployed rpm5 more and
our experiences are still chucked to the side like rubbish. TY

Cheers,
Matt
