Filed under
MDV

There have been some rumors floating around that Mandriva was going to abandon the transition to RPM 5, a fork of the original Red Hat Package Manager. Mandriva began moving to RPM 5 quite a while ago because it offers increased performance and added features.

In a blog post today, Per Øyvind Karlsen said he needed to set some rumors to rest. The first one has already been settled, but Karlsen confirmed there were no plans to remerge the Mandriva and Mageia projects.
