    Mandriva SA, the French company that used to control development of the Mandriva GNU/Linux distribution, has become something of a joke.

    After months of prevarication, and announcements that sounded as though they were emanating from a publication like Pravda, the company now says it will turn over development of the distribution to the community.

    The man who made the announcement, chief executive Jean-Manuel Croset, appears to have a poor memory. The horse bolted some time ago - a goodly portion of the development community, fed up with the company's dithering, forked the distribution in 2010 and created the Mageia GNU/Linux distribution.

    Now, Croset, after another of his meaningless announcements, each of which is just a series of words strung together providing next to no real information, apparently wants to split the community into two - one developing Mandriva, the other Mageia.
