Yes here is the main difference (I guess).

Then I started sharing them on the MepisLovers Forum. Then, since some of them were fairly popular, I started an unofficial repository to more easily share them. Others started building packages & submitting them.
There were bumps & turns along the way, folks came & went, but the MX repos & packagers had their start in the forums, helping Mepis be better for the users, and then helping MX get up & running when Mepis was discontinued.
The whole point from the start was making compatible packages the users (and we're users too) wanted while still running on a stable base. We're on the forums because that's where we started out, and that's where the value is. How else are we to know what our users want?
