Up to date urpmi sources?

For Mandrake 10.1, I've only found this place for my rpm sources.

Is this a pretty good place to find up-to-date stuff? How often is it typically updated? Is every server/location the same, in terms of files and updates?

Also, are there other sites that I can add to my urpmi list? I've recently found Thacs which is really nice. Any others?

The ones at easyurpmi are the official Mandrake and PLF repositories. Others probably have their own so do a google search and also checkout pclinuxonline, there used to be a good list there. As for the urpmi sources being updated, you have to manually do this once in a while by running "urpmi.update -a" as root, so that you can access the latest packages from the mirrors.
