Submission + - Mandriva fire most of the distribution team

eric_herm writes: Following the news of Edge-it liquidation, Mandriva subsidiary, most paid distributions developpers have
announced to the community on forum and mailling list they were leaving, culminating today with the departure of Anne Laure Nicolas, head of engineering.
The whole community is waiting on a positive announce on 17 september, but the perspective look quite bleak for the free software distribution, and while there was some announce about a possible russian investor, users on the forum express their concern with the inevitable loss of quality that will occurs following the layoff. This already bad news affect the company, already weakened by the scandal in Korea about Metanav, who sued everybody for using GPL.
