Last Friday the newspaper Vedomosti reported that a Russian firm, NGI, has purchased a controlling interest in Mandriva. The Quintura blog published a short English language summary of the article today. NGI had previously purchased a 5% stake in Mandriva in July for an undisclosed sum as part of the €3 million financial rescue of the company according to the Vedomosti article. NGI and Ceychas Fund are investing an additional €2 million to acquire controlling interest, including purchasing shares currently held by two other investors.

When I noticed a recent update for Wireshark in 2010.0 I wondered who is updating the rpm packages. Are updates now being done by official Mandriva people working for the Russian firm NGI, or by former Mandriva employees working as volunteers?

Check the last changelog entry of the package, it says who did the update.
