Before the recent aquisitions and name change Mandriva has included apt with RPM support, and one can simply point apt-get at the main Mandriva RPM repository for package management, if one prefers to use apt. As a debian and mandriva user, I have found that URPMI is an excellent tool. Mandriva's RPM's have package dependencies well taken care of and work every bit as good as debians debs, if not better. So what are the technologies Mandriva is failing to incorporate from it's Connectiva and Lycoris aquisitions?
