on irc://irc.freenode.net/#mageia-i18n today:
<ennael> I would like to close that bug for beta2

So I volunteered to check and replace Mandriva with Mageia in po files in SVN
with latin or transliterated strings:
$ svn status
M       cy.po
M       da.po
M       es.po
M       eu.po
M       gl.po
M       hu.po
M       is.po
M       ja.po
M       ky.po
M       ms.po
M       nb.po
M       nn.po
M       pl.po
M       pt_BR.po
M       pt.po
M       ro.po
M       sv.po
M       zh_TW.po

Respective translators please check these two especially:
jp, pl

I'm sure that Bulgarian bg.po still use Mandriva but I'm not very good at their
alphabet so I didn't change it:
bg.po-msgstr "Присъединете се към Мандрива Общността"

I'm not sure about Hebrew language so I also didn't change it:
he.po-msgstr "הצטרפות לקהילת מנדריבה"

IMPORTANT NOTE: Polish is also Slavic language as Slovene. So I noticed that we
both use declension for the name of distribution. Language corruption or no
desired change in string can occur if someone just use "s/Mandriva/Mageia/". Of
course we don't use declension for company or association name. I'm not sure
for other Slavic language but I suppose they have similar language rules for

ANOTHER IMPORTANT NOTE: There are still many languages not with empty but
without that string altogether. At least br.po, id.po, ku.po, ml.po, sr.po.
