81 If the very news we announce is "we're not Fedora/Redhat", people will
82 associate this to us anyway (because asking immediately "why not?").
83
84 What I mean is that we have to be super clear and short about what the
85 news will be, from our side; and it must be a single message, so
86 people can remember it for what it is (and not for what it's not).
87 - "Welcome, Mandriva, seriously"
88 - "Mandriva joins Mageia for its server product"
89 - "Mandriva uses Mageia for its server product" - we don't have a
90 different name for the project and for the product (that would have
91 been more clear to say that Mandriva was going to use and customize X
92 as a platform for their server, while just being a contributor to
93 project Y, whose governance is left unchanged).
94 - "Mageia will stay as it is, no change to governance"
95 - "A new Mageia-based/derivative corporate product on its way"
96
97 Or, we can be super neutral, like saying: "cool, there's a new company
98 using our technology for its products".
99
100 And yes, we need to prepare the Q/A session after, but I don't think
101 we should include it in the very release, if the release is short and
102 clear enough.
103
104 We must be especially careful, because there's a second announcement
105 pending from Mandriva (and which may be announced first actually,
106 tomorrow - Anne will send another mail about it), that's the
107 foundation of their own Mandriva Linux community entity (likely a
108 foundation, or so they say) and we will have to react to it as well
109 and explain why (and this one will need to have a short as well title,
110 plus a clear, limited rationale).
111
112 And depending on the timing, people may confuse the two announcements
113 - best for us, I believe, would be that they announce their foundation
114 first.
115
116 Let's not forget the bottom line of all this, that's utterly positive
117 in my view:
118 - Mandriva is going to use Mageia as a technology platform;
119 - we're going to have to think, discuss and take a stance in regard
120 of their foundation project.
