21 Hi everyone,
22
23 I'm mailing here the mail Romain sent to the board yesterday, following
24 last discussions with Mandriva CEO, JM Croset.
25
26 =================
27
28 so, Anne and me got in a conf call with JM Croset a few minutes ago to
29 get a status.
30
31 He announced yesterday (Thursday, May 18)
32 http://blog.mandriva.com/en/2012/05/17/mandriva-linux-will-return-to-the-community/.
33 So several discussions are popping up here and there. Mageia's
34 position has been transferred to some people inside Mandriva, among
35 which Peroyvind (see
36 https://forums.mageia.org/en/viewtopic.php?p=18041#p18041 - although he
37 doesn't have the full story it seems).
38
39 He will announce early next Monday (22) that Mandriva SA will use Mageia
40 as a tech platform for its business server line, and contribute back.
41 Antoine Ginies (Mandriva engineer in chief for the business server) will
42 get in touch with us to see how we do this technically.
43
44 He worries that trolls and discussions may damage Mageia in the coming
45 days (for both news: Mandriva using Mageia as a tech platform for its
46 Business Server line; and Mageia not following Mandriva in its
47 foundation things) because he realizes that... community stuff sometimes
48 goes out of hand; but he reassured us that, whatever is said, he does
49 mean good for everyone; so it's important to play it cool and neutral on
50 our side too.
51
52 So, here's a suggested plan:
53
54 * we announce/explicit both news on our side on Monday early morning
55 (CEST) as well, in a single blog post embedding all Mandriva-related news:
56 - on one side, Mageia is not going to join Mandriva foundation
57 project (and why, cold reasons as we gave him),
58 - on the other side, Mandriva is going to use Mageia as tech
59 platform for its business server line (link) and contribute back.
60 - this double news should make it more obvious that things are not
61 so simple as "Mageia is dumping Mandriva" or "Mandriva is rebasing on
62 Mageia".
63
64 * this news being published Monday morning, it leaves two full days to
65 propagate, before we push the Mageia 2 release news (Tuesday evening) -
66 interest about Mageia will have raised a bit in the previous days, and
67 this release news will hide partially the previous news.
68
69 ===================
70
71 It's good news for Mageia as it makes Mageia ecosystem grow up. It will
72 make things clearer for Mageia community now as many things were told
73 about Mandriva future and community. Mageia keeps its own governance and
74 organization which are now working quite well.
75
76 So the next step is about communicating on these news. As said by Romain
77 it has to be prepared and be ready very quickly as Mandriva announcement
78 is planned for sunday evening. Mandriva CEO will send us the draft of
79 its own announcement so that we can check we all agree on the content.
80
81 So now we have to work on the Mageia blog post which will be published
82 on monday morning:
