To me it seemed clear enough that you were talking about the views at 
the meeting and the directions you'd like to see for Mageia.
Considering that Mageia is known to be at an early stage of development, 
I don't think that many would expect Mageia to be very decided yet anyway.
In sum, I think it was a good interview.
Plus your project is excellent for attacting interest to Mageia. :)

My 2 cents
