As Trish already knows I think merging the marketing and communications, 
and artwork team together is a good idea.

I seem to pretty much agree with rda or nearly and I like Josh's name 
suggestion more so than Oliver's.

I think MArtCom should be created, a IRC channel and mailing list. For 
the IRC channel I am willing to register it and set it up as in giving 
leaders and deputy leaders ops for example.

We could also drop two Mageia IRC channels that's marcom and artwork and 
replace them with martcom. It also seems that marcom and artwork aren't 
even registered on the Freenode network, or they are, but not set up in 
the normal way.

As for the mailing list currently marketing and artwork have the mailing 
lists on mailman: https://www.mageia.org/mailman/listinfo/ For some 
reason the newer mailing lists get listed at 
https://ml.mageia.org/l/home instead. It also seems going by a docs team 
meeting that I was in, that the older mailing lists are likely to 
eventually move over to the newer set up. With the newer set up unlike 
the old, a Mageia Identify account is also required to be on the mailing 

We could still keep the separate team IRC channels and mailing lists, 
but I think it makes much more sense to do a proper merge and stop using 

As for old emails to the mailing lists, they can either stay where they 
are in the archives for the old mailing lists and people stop sending to 
that list, or sending to is disabled. The messages could also be 
archived some where else publicly.

As for the meeting IRC logs they can stay in there sections at 
http://meetbot.mageia.org for the old channels, and I expect they can 
also be pointed to from a new martcom IRC channel section.

As for the team leader and deputy team leader positions, I agree with 
rda or pretty much it seems. I think Trish should instantly become the 
leader of the new MArtCom, and I become the deputy leader, since I won 
the vote for becoming that recently for marketing.  However Trish and 
myself would be mainly the marketing side of the MArtCom team, and 
leader-wise we need the artwork as well, and so Max for example could 
become the other deputy leader or leader. Like rda suggested and I 100% 
agree with him, the team should have two seats at the council.  Well 
actually maybe it should have more than that depending on how things go 
in the future.

I would probably want Max to be the deputy leader or leader of a new 
MArtCom team on the artwork side. TeaAge it seems has been away for a 
long time, and I think the artwork team should have a vote like other 
teams have been doing on who should be leader and deputy leader. Or 
members of a new MArtCom team can vote (if we start that team) for who 
should be the leader and deputy leader on the artwork side.
