I'll leave it to your decision; but as a reader (and due to the way the 
interview "headlines" were picked out and positioned), it looked to me that 
the first part was about meeting, second part on mageia, and third part back on 

possibly if an editorial note in the interview only below the 2nd "Headline", 
it could be noted that you're referring to the meeting and not official position 
of mageia (even though that has been said plenty of times on the interview 

but you choose, i just say what it looked like to me. but i could very well be 
the only one who sees it that way.
