Not quite evident to understand in this quite controversial discussion!

I cant keep my tong away from my cheek - sorry. The real point for my 
reply is: I am getting more and more confused with the ultimate goal 
pursued by Mageia:

- (1) Does Mageia define its profile and then develops sales arguments 
for how to sell the distro?
- (2) Does Mageia make a list of sales arguments and then designs the 
distro that goes with these arguments?

Probably it is a mix of both - but there should be a clear priority. I 
had understood Mageia to be a community distro, i.e. no question, (1): 
shape the distro according to the needs of the community - and then (OK, 
plan beforehand) see how to hook more "customers". I believe in the 
solidity of the community behind Mageia and its opinions - what this 
community judges right has a large probability of being "right" - why 
forget this achievement and base judgement on opportunity (afraid, my 
tong again ...)
