to the news that Mandriva Linux will be a community project.
"Mageia.Org’s board was contacted privately by Mr. Croset before this
announcement, to discuss the opportunity to have Mageia representatives
joining their working group (unfortunately the discussion had to be
private, as it was requested by Mandriva to keep the information private
until their announcement). Ultimately, the Mageia.Org board declined the
offer and for clarity we are publishing the reasons for this decision
to post comments)
