18 Le 20/05/2012 11:31, Anne Nicolas a crit :
19 > Hi everyone
20
21 Please try to add comments on all this, even if it's short. We need as
22 many feedbacks as possible until tomorrow on this mail and on pad
23
24 Cheers

26 >
27 > This mail is not using usual council ML but group alias
28 > (council@group.mageia.org). Please keep it for current discussions.
29 >
30 > I'm mailing here the mail Romain sent to the board yesterday, following
31 > last discussions we had with Mandriva CEO, JM Croset.
32 >
33 > =================
34 >
35 > so, Anne and me got in a conf call with JM Croset a few minutes ago to
36 > get a status.
37 >
38 > He announced yesterday (Thursday, May 18)
39 > http://blog.mandriva.com/en/2012/05/17/mandriva-linux-will-return-to-the-community/.
40 > So several discussions are popping up here and there. Mageia's
41 > position has been transferred to some people inside Mandriva, among
42 > which Peroyvind (see
43 > https://forums.mageia.org/en/viewtopic.php?p=18041#p18041 - although he
44 > doesn't have the full story it seems).
45 >
46 > He will announce early next Monday (22) that Mandriva SA will use Mageia
47 > as a tech platform for its business server line, and contribute back.
48 > Antoine Ginies (Mandriva engineer in chief for the business server) will
49 > get in touch with us to see how we do this technically.
50 >
51 > He worries that trolls and discussions may damage Mageia in the coming
52 > days (for both news: Mandriva using Mageia as a tech platform for its
53 > Business Server line; and Mageia not following Mandriva in its
54 > foundation things) because he realizes that... community stuff sometimes
55 > goes out of hand; but he reassured us that, whatever is said, he does
56 > mean good for everyone; so it's important to play it cool and neutral on
57 > our side too.
58 >
59 > So, here's a suggested plan:
60 >
61 > * we announce/explicit both news on our side on Monday early morning
62 > (CEST) as well, in a single blog post embedding all Mandriva-related news:
63 > - on one side, Mageia is not going to join Mandriva foundation project
64 > (and why, cold reasons as we gave him),
65 > - on the other side, Mandriva is going to use Mageia as tech platform
66 > for its business server line (link) and contribute back.
67 > - this double news should make it more obvious that things are not so
68 > simple as "Mageia is dumping Mandriva" or "Mandriva is rebasing on Mageia".
69 >
70 > * this news being published Monday morning, it leaves two full days to
71 > propagate, before we push the Mageia 2 release news (Tuesday evening) -
72 > interest about Mageia will have raised a bit in the previous days, and
73 > this release news will hide partially the previous news.
74 >
75 > ===================
76 >
77 > It's good news for Mageia as it makes Mageia ecosystem grow up. It will
78 > make things clearer for Mageia community now as many things were told
79 > about Mandriva future and community. Mageia keeps its own governance and
80 > organization which are now working quite well.
81 >
82 > So the next step is about communicating on these news. As said by Romain
83 > it has to be prepared and be ready very quickly as Mandriva announcement
84 > is planned for sunday evening. Mandriva CEO will send us the draft of
85 > its own announcement so that we can check we all agree on the content.
86 >
87 > So now we have to work on the Mageia blog post which will be published
88 > on monday morning:
89 > https://pad.riseup.net/p/mdv-foundation
90 >
91 > native english speakers needed for proofread :)
92 >
93 > Waiing for your comments
94 >
95 > Cheers
