17 Hi everyone,
18
19 This mail is not using usual council ML but group alias
20 (council@group.mageia.org). Please keep it for current discussions.
21
22 I'm mailing here the mail Romain sent to the board yesterday, following
23 last discussions we had with Mandriva CEO, JM Croset.
24
25 =================
26
27 so, Anne and me got in a conf call with JM Croset a few minutes ago to
28 get a status.
29
30 He announced yesterday (Thursday, May 18)
31 http://blog.mandriva.com/en/2012/05/17/mandriva-linux-will-return-to-the-community/.
32 So several discussions are popping up here and there. Mageia's
33 position has been transferred to some people inside Mandriva, among
34 which Peroyvind (see
35 https://forums.mageia.org/en/viewtopic.php?p=18041#p18041 - although he
36 doesn't have the full story it seems).
37
38 He will announce early next Monday (22) that Mandriva SA will use Mageia
39 as a tech platform for its business server line, and contribute back.
40 Antoine Ginies (Mandriva engineer in chief for the business server) will
41 get in touch with us to see how we do this technically.
42
43 He worries that trolls and discussions may damage Mageia in the coming
44 days (for both news: Mandriva using Mageia as a tech platform for its
45 Business Server line; and Mageia not following Mandriva in its
46 foundation things) because he realizes that... community stuff sometimes
47 goes out of hand; but he reassured us that, whatever is said, he does
48 mean good for everyone; so it's important to play it cool and neutral on
49 our side too.
50
51 So, here's a suggested plan:
52
53 * we announce/explicit both news on our side on Monday early morning
54 (CEST) as well, in a single blog post embedding all Mandriva-related news:
55 - on one side, Mageia is not going to join Mandriva foundation
56 project (and why, cold reasons as we gave him),
57 - on the other side, Mandriva is going to use Mageia as tech
58 platform for its business server line (link) and contribute back.
59 - this double news should make it more obvious that things are not
60 so simple as "Mageia is dumping Mandriva" or "Mandriva is rebasing on
61 Mageia".
62
63 * this news being published Monday morning, it leaves two full days to
64 propagate, before we push the Mageia 2 release news (Tuesday evening) -
65 interest about Mageia will have raised a bit in the previous days, and
66 this release news will hide partially the previous news.
67
68 ===================
69
70 It's good news for Mageia as it makes Mageia ecosystem grow up. It will
71 make things clearer for Mageia community now as many things were told
72 about Mandriva future and community. Mageia keeps its own governance and
73 organization which are now working quite well.
74
75 So the next step is about communicating on these news. As said by Romain
76 it has to be prepared and be ready very quickly as Mandriva announcement
77 is planned for sunday evening. Mandriva CEO will send us the draft of
78 its own announcement so that we can check we all agree on the content.
79
80 So now we have to work on the Mageia blog post which will be published
81 on monday morning:
82 https://pad.riseup.net/p/mdv-foundation
83
84 native english speakers needed for proofread :)
85
86 Waiing for your comments
87
88 Cheers
