Linux

Last we heard from Mageia they had chosen their logo and set up infrastructure, teams, and roadmap. Now they are beginning to get into the nuts and bolts of organizing the packaging process. And as you know, packages are the distribution.

About 28 people gathered together on on the #mageia-dev Internet Relay Chat channel to discuss the organization of packaging software for the Mandriva fork. The recruitment of new contributors was among the topics discussed at the December 15 meeting, as well as electing representatives to interact with various Mageia councils and to help manage the packagers team on a daily basis. The packaging team currently boasts over 100 contributors.
