MDV

Things are starting to look really nice now, cooker activity seems to have gotten back to previous levels and even then some and interest from new contributors seems to have increased as well, really nice to see!

The defintive most interesting and “controversial”/intrusive thing of my biggest focus these days is taking over rpm maintenance and now working with great assistance from Jeff & Ric on preparing and getting the final bits and pieces in place for getting some of the biggest and neatest changes wrt. rpm in Mandriva since probably forever, not only technically, but community-wise, influence, r&d and simply being able to make packaging way easier and maintenance work way less demanding. A lot of new things will now come now that we’re not only maintaining obsolete versions of rpm with no interaction and participation in upstream, but we actually help drive it now.
