This page - and in general this wiki - will be part of a global move of the Mandriva Linux Project to the community that will be finalized soon. Mandriva SA wishes the project to be managed by the Mandriva Linux community under a proper governance. We (Mandriva SA) will contribute to the Mandriva Linux project in the future and would like to see it grow. We do not wish to comment below the following line and want to emphasize that the present wiki is the community wiki, while being hosted for the time being on a domain.

J.-M. Croset, Mandriva SA, CEO.
