Thanks for your question, Alexey!

I looked at the manuals and they seem quite similar from what we
already have in our openSUSE documentation. Apart from that I am not
sure about the license. I am not an expert in legal issues but I
doubt it will be compatible with our GFDL.

What you could do is to create an abstract where appropriate and link
to the respective chapter(s) in the Mandrive/Mandrake manual.


Bye,
Tom
