http://www.mandrakeclub.com - mainly a way to support Mandrakesoft
efficiently, access to the commercial software on the CDs (such as
JRE/JDK as rpm, NVidia drivers etc), and the RPM Voting (mostly, but not
totally, powered by the volunteers ..).

> BTW, what is the work for a volunteer ?

Texstar, and a lot more), some just because the are volunteers (build
rpms for stable releases etc).
