Parent article: Whither Mandriva?
Also a important fact that needs to be pointed out is that ROSA has never forked Mandriva Linux, nor intended to do such, only considering such as a *last* resort.
ROSA Linux is actually ROSA's customized, Russian distribution based on Mandriva Linux, to be certified and serve as the basis and being able to compete in the government bids for various hugely important contracts, which it's already won the first round in competion of.
Myself, while being employed full time by ROSA, is only involved in cooker and focusing on the Mandriva Linux distribution, where the situation left with ROSA setting up their own list and infrastructure separate from Mandriva has been done to focus on their next ROSA Linux release and also out of responsibility due to the conflict with and uncertainty of Mandriva and fears concerning the reliability of the infrastructure required.
So people hasn't "moved" to ROSA at all, and what much of my post was about was simply that all development that's not strictly related to ROSA alone should take place on cooker in English, rather than on rosa-devel in Cyrillic..
