Dear ol' Matthew Dawkins, my colleague at Unity Linux
, yesterday introduced me to the handsome development team of OpenMandriva
, after I expressed my wish to contribute to the project. OpenMandriva is a promising project, much bigger than Unity, and just what Unity should have been. But anyway, Unity is now a part of the OpenMandriva alliance in that it's a contributing member, and perhaps Unity's next release will be based on OM's repositories, much like how it used it be based on the Mandriva's Cooker repo previously. All this makes a lot of sense as OM is structured similarly to Unity itself.
I intend to start there as part of the infrastructure and development teams, contributing primarily to packaging (they have an awesome build system [BS]) and web development. And it makes perfect sense to base the long pending Granular 2 on OM later down the line. Once I get comfortable with their BS, I'll build some pkgs for Granular and build a beta ISO or two using the ideas listed on our wiki's Granular 2
page. That's my plan.
