Lecture: Mageia - a fork evolves

The difficulty in forking


In this talk, I want to describe the technical and organisatorial aspects we faced while creating the Mageia project and distribution.
Describing shortly the goals of the project and the difficulties we faced in its creation.

The Mageia project was founded in September 2010 due to the uncertain future of the Mandriva Linux distribution - which is connected fully to the fate of Mandriva S.A. in Paris.
In this lecture I want to describe the evolusion from the idea of the Mageia project in september 2010 to its first release in early June 2011.
This lecture describes the organisatorial aspects as well as - at least partially - the technical ones.
All presented by a Mageia member who joined the project on day one.
The lecture will also describe the difficulties we had to face in the creation of the distribution and how we solved them.

Notice: This conference can be held in English or German depending on if there are people listening who don't speak German.
