64 Hi everyone,
65
66 so, Anne and me got in a conf call with JM Croset a few minutes ago to
67 get a status.
68
69 He announced yesterday (Thursday, May 18)
70 http://blog.mandriva.com/en/2012/05/17/mandriva-linux-will-return-to-the-community/
71 . So several discussions are popping up here and there. Mageia's
72 position has been transferred to some people inside Mandriva, among
73 which Peroyvind (see
74 https://forums.mageia.org/en/viewtopic.php?p=18041#p18041 - although
75 he doesn't have the full story it seems).
76
77 He will announce early next Monday (22) that Mandriva SA will use
78 Mageia as a tech platform for its business server line, and contribute
79 back. Antoine Ginies (Mandriva engineer in chief for the business
80 server) will get in touch with us to see how we do this technically.
81
82 He worries that trolls and discussions may damage Mageia in the coming
83 days (for both news: Mandriva using Mageia as a tech platform for its
84 Business Server line; and Mageia not following Mandriva in its
85 foundation things) because he realizes that... community stuff
86 sometimes goes out of hand; but he reassured us that, whatever is
87 said, he does mean good for everyone; so it's important to play it
88 cool and neutral on our side too.
89
90 So, here's a suggested plan:
91
92 * we announce/explicit both news on our side on Monday early morning
93 (CEST) as well, in a single blog post embedding all Mandriva-related
94 news:
95 - on one side, Mageia is not going to join Mandriva foundation
96 project (and why, cold reasons as we gave him),
97 - on the other side, Mandriva is going to use Mageia as tech
98 platform for its business server line (link) and contribute back.
99 - this double news should make it more obvious that things are not
100 so simple as "Mageia is dumping Mandriva" or "Mandriva is rebasing on
101 Mageia".
102
103 * this news being published Monday morning, it leaves two full days
104 to propagate, before we push the Mageia 2 release news (Tuesday
105 evening) - interest about Mageia will have raised a bit in the
106 previous days, and this release news will hide partially the previous
107 news.
108
109 * until now, all this has been kept private in board-private: a)
110 knowledge and decision about the foundation, and b) business server
111 thing. Note that about a), people may question both the decision and
112 the fact that it was private, without consulting the Council. We will
113 mail privately Council members to inform them about both a) and b),
114 but still. We won't need further arguments than what we explained to
115 Mandriva, and what the governance says. But still again. In the case
116 of things getting really ugly in the coming weeks, I'd suggest that we
117 call for a vote of confidence to make things very clear (from Council,
118 or from all registered contributors in LDAP).
119
120 Sorry to make this quick, but we need to approve/reject/amend on this
121 before tomorrow Saturday (even better, this evening) so we can discuss
122 this with Council members in private too before Monday morning.
