"Well, as it turns out, Mandriva is experiencing even
harder times financially, and a group of Mandriva developers seems
to agree with my assessment of Mandriva's situation and is
therefore forking Mandriva into the Mageia project. This group
believes that the Mandriva organization can no longer sustain
itself, the Mandriva operating system, and the Mandriva community,
so a new community-driven effort must be created to fill that void.
It's something that I suspected would happen for Mandriva to stay
alive, and this development is something that should be watched
over the next few months"
