Most probably due to corporate losses Mandriva sacks two top notch contributors:
LWN.net "Two Mandriva contractors - Adam Williamson and Oden Eriksson have announced that their contracts are being terminated. These two developers are responsible for a great deal of the work which goes into the Mandriva distribution; as Oden notes: "Someone, or a couple of people will get their hands full (or not) maintaining the 1200+ source rpm packages I currently maintain. This is mostly server related stuff. For example the (L)AMP stack, to my knowledge the most complete on the planet, constantly growing and alive."
My suggestion is to hire them before Red Hat does.
