Mageia name is not up for debate for the project. Not because it's
good enough or something else, but because that's its name. :-)

That does not exclude that other names may be used, for releases, for
instance. But that's not really what was envisioned at first either.
Let's discuss this later.

As for Graham being marketing team lead - that will be to the
marketing team to decide all together (as well as decide on a
suppleant). But I definitely support you! :-p

Note that being a team lead is still distinct from being on board, at
least for the first round as we're going to have a founding board (I
hope we will announce more about this by the coming days).
