I perfectly agree with what you say, and I agree that this list is 
suffering from an excessive amount of messages.

Formally: I forwarded an urgent warning of common interest to colleagues 
and used the only channel available - no "discussion" about Mandriva at 
all. What - quote - "Mandriva mailing list" do you refer to?

You did not get the point:
1. Installing the latest updates from Mandriva threatens to make people 
lose substantial time
2. The Mandriva forum - the proper place to broadcast such a warning - 
is down
3. The large majority of people on this Mageia list use Mandriva and are 
concerned by this issue.

So ??? Do you really expect that I just watch smilingly how people whom 
I estimate and who devote a tremendous amount of time to build Mageia 
risk to waste their time?

I understand that doing things in an organised way is essential, but 
following principles blindly is just as bad has not considering 
principles at all!

Grrrr!!! Let us stop that discussion on this list - I hope that some 
time we will have the occasion have a glass of something good together 
to talk this out between us.
