Hi there, if you want those packages added, please submit a package request for those, after searching if that hasn't been reported already: ... ge_request

For skype, we have get-skype (which would currently require an update, but they do not offer the tarball anymore, see
On some systems, there are also problems with the newer version, check )
pdftk has been removed from our repositories as it is dead upstream and it does no longer build.
For tlp there are already package requests, feel free to follow those:

Just added TLP (OpenSUSE tlp-1.0-1.1.noarch.rpm) to Mageia6 on my netbook.
Battery life with 60% juice still went from 2:15h with an active desktop (Palemoon browser with ~15 tabs) to 2:50h. Men that was an easy +26% battery life :D
Note this is on an eight years old netbook with Intel Atom 2nd Gen. and GMA 950. Newer AMD or Intel CPUs have (much) deeper "sleep steps" aka energy saving states.
Seeding Mageia 5 (212 GB since 2016-02-06); Mageia 6 dev1 (363 GB) and sta1 install/LiveDVD (101 GB since 2016-07-03, also on LT).
My GPG: 0xAA75254B.

How can we go about seeing packages not being added here?
