That's what I meant with the impression all this gives to the outside.

The normal user will not be very interested but all those outside who
publish reviews, give opinions in blogs, discuss overall pictures of
the Linux world and of single distributions - they will take such
things into account and will comment on such issues. Then again it's
the users who read such reviews, probably getting a wrong impression
because they did not read all these mails.

No. Mageia is built on transparency - that was one of the main points
when Mageia was founded. transparency is not a problem here - we must
(and want to) live up to its consequences.
