turbogears,pylons and cakephp are not available, but you can request them and I am sure they will be added.

But while we are at it, does Ubuntu have Metisse packaged? ;)

Really? Forgive me for being a bit skeptical about it being that easy.

Unknown. I'll let you know if I ever have a valid need to turn a window sideways.

But if it isn't, you can request them and I am sure they will be added. :-)

Oerr, you asked the question
"Can you point out some packages which Mandriva has which are hard to find for a deb based distro?" and
I showed you an example of one. I do not have the need for CakePHP, Pylons or Turbogear either. Or for that matter Metisse. ;)
