I totally agree with both Juan Luis Baptiste and Buchan Milne.

No rolling release!

This is just a fancy word.

But then, the "goals" of "rolling release" are already accomplished with the 
current Mandriva system, and I hope Mageia will keep this functionality:


Probably, what needs to happen is to publicize more backports for 
advanced/cutting edge/rolling users instead of changing something that is 
not broken.
