some initial thoughts:
 - upgraded artwork, where available
 - some very noticable bugs:
    - script.js file missing in indexhtml page, which means the page doesn't 
redirect to www.mageia.org (and perhaps some 
 - the KDE black background issue if possible
 - rescue would be usefull
 - if possible some smaller isos, since most other packages can be found 
online, and i'm pretty sure most people don't need all this? if possible < 
700MB ?

also, i would like to discuss if it would be possible to modify vboxvideo 
detection so that vbox3 packaged with mandriva could work with either vesa or 
vboxvideo3 instead of vboxvideo (just so it won't crash); this due to the 
upgrade path from mandriva 2010.1 .

I fear we would get alot of comments if we get this wrong, even though it's 
the users fault of not upgrading yet.
