Mandriva Foundation Structure Illustrated, OpenMDV Intro’d





mandrivaMandriva Open Source Relations Manager, Charles Schulz, today tried to clarify the foundation’s vision of structure of community interaction and resulting products. Instead of explaining, he posted a flow-chart to illustrate the relationships between downstream and upstream projects, contributors, and the Mandriva distribution.

Schulz describes the diagram as "an attempt at describing how the project will work and what it will aim at. It displays the general logic of contributions, by and for the community but also integrates what will be external products meant to be sold by companies that are based on the software development and packaging done inside the foundation."

As you can see the still-forming Mandriva community is broken down into three main contribution sources: Rosa, Mandriva community, and Mandriva SA employees. All these will contribute to the "Share Cooker" repository. Several projects are shown pulling code out of the shared Cooker repo. MIB and Unity base their projects’ on Mandriva code and are shown as pulling from Cooker, but not contributing back.

The most interesting section is the resulting products. OpenMDV, which one assumes is going to be the new name for the Open Source community release, seems to be the main focus. Rosa Linux, who offers a customized version of Mandriva, will naturally continue to pull from Cooker. And finally there’s a box to symbolize a range of whatever Mandriva commercial products they may want to base on Cooker.

Schulz hopes this helps folks makes sense of the Mandriva Linux Foundation, but there still seems to be some persistent talk of Mandriva SA using Mageia code for their commercial products.
