Can you please provide a link to the place on the official site where I can read about this Mandriva 2007 connection you mentioned? The only official connection to Mandriva (Mandrake) I can find is this one:

http://docs.pclinuxos.com/History

"...PCLinuxOS was based upon work by Mandrake/Mandriva (v9.2)...", no references to further connections with Mandriva or Mandrake.

I don't believe that specifically is mentioned on the website, but see:

post #47:

"Last year we did a rebase against an updated Mandriva to get an updated code base to work from mainly gcc and glibc due to time and resource limitations."

which was a big-ass thread in response to a comment I made in a Distrowatch Weekly thread, where I actually went and compared PCLOS SRPMs against Mandriva ones.
