Well, I was rather expecting this after reading Vincent's blog this morning (and to be honest, doing some basic mental arithmetic on our recent financial results), but I have been told that as of December 31st, I'll no longer be working for Mandriva, as all external contractors are being canned. I've had a great time working for Mandriva, and hopefully whatever job I find next will leave me enough time and flexibility to keep working on the distribution as a volunteer. I'll try and still be around the user community after my contract expires, too. Obviously, if anyone is interested in hiring me, please do get in touch :). My personal email, which is adamwill AT shaw DOT ca, is probably more appropriate than my work one...I guess most people reading this have a reasonable idea of what I do, but an updated CV / resume is of course available.
