As user I wouldn't think you want to kill/destroy/blow up/whatever evil you
may imagine to do to Mandriva.
You just try to get the best for Mageia's users. Although the cutting edge
is not he best. I wish to have the newest possible (read stable) version
built in my distro.
Let's not be negative and hostile in thinking.
Yes, it is possible if Mageia is better than Mandriva to harm Mandriva...
Will you ever be one step back just not to harm it?
Actually, if Mageia will contribute to some important component as KDE is,
this will help all the distros around, including Mandriva. I'm sure they
will upgrade some component due to their plan, so it is not anybody's fault
if they decide to remain behind (to a certain version).
