Not really, IMHO. Nothing stops Mandriva company from using Mageia packages, 
nor Mageia project from using Mandriva work at any time in the future. WDYT?
Similarly, nothing prevents Mageia from sharing code and resources with the 
rest of Linux community, distros etc. 

If so, I would  rephrase that statement: 
Mageia has forked the Mandriva company, where the distro had been developed so 
far. This means that the Mageia project is and will forever be an autonomous 
project, not depending on the Mandriva company. Mageia is free, community 

Say NO to spam and viruses. Stop using Microsoft Windows!
