> For the real reasons, every Edge-IT employee I spoke with before leaving said that while they did like the new plans of the new investors, they did leave exactly because the few people who weren't offered a new contract, which made them feel like Mandriva wouldn't be the same place to work anymore, thus declining the contract.

I've not heard anyone saying they liked the new plans of the new investors. Actually I don't know how it's possible to like a new plan that you know nothing about.
People were explained by Jean Noel de Galzain that they need not know about what their plans are, it's not their job, "just shut up and go back to your coding".

By the way, nobody was offered a new contract before the declaration of cessation of payments. Some people were offered one after, but leaving edge-it to join mandriva at this time could only be done with some skulduggery.

Well, let's wait and see how they're going to execute both short- and mid-term (if any). I've started a minimal Mageia mirror in the mean time.

Good luck, folks. We all need a bit of it from time to time.

I personally proposed to Ann Nicolas to stay in Mandriva and create new vision of Mandriva future. But after short period of time, she said "too late and I leave Edge-IT as the all its staff do".
