As you can read in the Mageiea blog this is in the making. The basic
goals have been given in the announcement, details are being worked
on. The mailing lists, especially the general mageia-discuss is a mere
brainstorming where everybody give shis ideas and opinons, with no
real structure. The necessary structure is in the making, like the
i18n mailing lists. Coem structure, come real discussions which will
lead to results, gathering the current unstructured ideas and forming
them in the various sections.
