The second thing I wonder is which branches of the Mandriva repos are
included? All three? main, contrib and non-free? Or just main?

Just main.

So far no one asked for more and the others may need more legal
if we are allowed to import them.

As a matter of fact, some people asked for more:

...and I'm pretty sure there have been some more over the last two years.

okay, I have briefly checked contrib and non-free and they contain stuff
which is on our blacklist (due to license problems, patent problems and
copyright issues).

So, sorry, I don't see a way here. And I don't want to spend too much time
on checking each single package.

If there are some common needed packages it would maybe better to build them
based on a
common base. So they would also be available for SUSE, Fedora and friends.

Btw, this would also help to build the apps for all the distros, because a
common base would
exist. Something like LSB-extended ;)
