"Initial release of Mandriva fork Mageia is still on track for
release later this month. Numerous preparations continue behind the
scenes to facilitate this highly anticipated release.
"A previous report of an earlier packagers' meeting outlined
some of the procedures and personnel in place and still needed to
begin the process of building Mageia software. Hardware and
temporary hosting was secured and the build system was being
implemented. In a more recent blog posting, Mageia representatives
stated that "packaging tasks have been launched." While the build
system isn't fully operational, the first 40 packages are expected
in the coming days as letters describing the SVN upload process,
which is ready, have been sent."
