MDV

Last week when Schulz posted his diagram of the general structure of the new Mandriva foundation, he used the name OpenMDV as a placeholder for the new community distribution.

So, now, you too can help pick the name of the new Mandriva community distribution.

Schulz said, "we have opened a poll that will let you pick the name of the future distribution (and its foundation).

The Licensing and Compliance Lab interviews AJ Jordon of gplenforced.org

I don't know about you, but when I say I want my programs to respect users' freedom, I mean it. So GPL enforcement is important. It seemed to me that there are probably a lot of developers out there who want to support GPL enforcement but don't have a good way to voice that support. gplenforced.org is essentially a quick and dirty hack I wrote to make that dead-simple.
