A collaborative and fully open development model
Mandriva Linux has a big community of developers which use our common development plateform Cooker to interact. The community of developers includes people of Mandriva company and many contributors who work together to release the best features and exciting new developments.
The Cooker provides all the source code, publicly available and released in real time, and tools such as cvs for source code, bugzilla for bug tracking, etc.
Note that all significant contributors are granted a Mandriva Club Membership which provides access to most commercial Mandriva products and documentation, as well as early access to newly-released versions.
