Mandriva involvement in the GNU/Linux community

Mandriva is born in the community, and has always been carrying on the community philosophy.
The aim of our community philosophy, which is very important to all Mandriva members, is:

*   To contribute to the GNU/Linux community reinforcement
  • by constantly involving in the community movements and organizations (FSF, Linux Standard Base, KDE League, GNOME Foundation,...)
  • by actively supporting the projects of the independant Open Source contributors.
  • by building Internet tools dedicated to the Community (website hosting, Mandriva Expert, PHP-Nuke)
  • .

*   To enlarge the GNU/Linux community
  • by developing partnerships to massively spread Linux.
  • by supporting LUGs (Linux User Groups) and events organizors to promote free software.
  • by favoring the knowledge access to the majority thanks to the free software. (projects against the Digital Divide).
Here are some concrete examples of our loyalty to the value of the community:
  • The choice of a collaborative developement model: Cooker, for our product.
  • Licensing systematically our achievements under GPL.
  • Acquisition of a company in order to put its product (Plex86) under GPL license to benefit the GNU/Linux community.

*   LUGs
