Volodya, I'm not aiming to irritate anyone; but those reading your PR should also know the destruction to the free software in Russia and France that PingWinSoft/Rosa have brought during the last few years -- and it's *massive*, way worse than what even Microsoft has achieved to date AFAIK (to those who missed the story: these lamers raided down and then completely devastated the Russian school project rendering tens of thousands of teachers being literally tortured through deeply useless "courses" and "installations" and "reports" without any real on-site help and lasting result -- I don't think that even Leonid Reiman the thief was intending to take it *that* bad; but in Mandriva case he definitely should have known better what he's going to mess with).
It's only slowly cured by real job done but *not* by announcements which are going to continue being accompanied by reminders like this -- even if you choose to misclassify disclosure as trolling.
I know you personally are not evil and hope it will be so in the future. But you chose to go with the wrong people in the first place, I doubt you will be able to fix this bug.
Good luck, and may the next year see more free software and less spam originating from the company you came to lead.
