[Mageia-discuss] Wish List

I see that some of us are suggesting all sorts of ideas for tools to use and
tools to replace and perhaps also new packages to be included.
I would like to suggest that for me and perhaps for a silent majority (OK
perhaps not) the most important thing is to get a good stable working Mageia
2011.0 out there and if that means making very very few changes relative to
what a new Mandriva release might have been then that is good.
The less we seek to change the quicker the first stable release can appear.
That is the conclusion I have drawn from some of the dev comments. The
quicker the first stable release is out then the sooner we can look to
introducing necessary/desirable changes and forge the new Mageia identity.
I seem to recall that in the early days Mandrake was belittled by calling it
just a repackaged Red Hat. I think the best accolade we could receive for
Mageia 1 is "just a repackaged Mandriva".
Surely the time to strike out on our own and in our own direction is after we
have established a firm foundation which is attractivly familiar to all of
the existing Mandriva user base.
