The difference
""/MandrivaLinux""
Unlike the "Official" tree, the "Community" tree for each version of Mandriva is not frozen. It starts off the same as the Official tree, but from that point on, updated packages can be added to it. Firstly, all the updates produced by the security team (which normally live in /official/updates) are also copied into the "Community" tree. However, the "Community" tree also gets other updates. Some of these updates are small, non-security related updates and fixes which did not need to be issued as full "official" updates. "Community" also contains updates for some packages from the "contrib" directory, which contains packages which the security team does not officially support. So you can see that the "Community" tree is a more dynamic, up-to-date tree than "Official". The "Community" tree is used as the base for updated versions of each Mandriva Linux release. For instance, the special Christmas edition of Mandriva Linux 2006 for the Mandriva Club was based on the Mandriva Linux 2006 "Community" tree as it stood in December 2005, and Mandriva Linux One 2006 is based on the "Community" tree as it stood at the start of March 2006. This means that if you install one of these updated versions of Mandriva Linux, or if you install from the official CDs then use the "Community" tree as a source of packages, you are running the "Community" version of Mandriva Linux.
