As we all know, Eugeni Dodonov is leaving Mandriva. During his time as Mandriva he wore several hats and one of which was in the trenches coding some of Mandriva's handiest tools. He has updated and placed them in a github directory for any distribution to use.
Dodonov states these tools may use Mandriva graphical front-ends, but the underlying tools should work on any distribution. He thought that previously use by other distros may have been hampered by subversion repository access and availability. He adds, "I'll be still maintaining and developing them for the foreseeable future, but - as always - everyone is free to contribute, adapt and use them in the way you think the best."
