Firebird history and Mageia story are related to each other  , here are the Philippe’s kind words

A new GNU Linux distribution is born : Mageia, a Mandriva Linux fork.

So why speak about this here ?

First, Firebird packages need a maintainer and as I am the one in Mandriva, I will do the same in Mageia

Second, this story remind me a little the Firebird story

Third I’m enthusiast to contribute (may be more than only Firebird related packages) to a such challenging adventure, and in this one, there are people that I really trust.

Long live Mageia :
