The guy (or gal) who decided about notable or not must be either a
very bad researcher or did not try at all - I suppose it is the latter
because even if you look with half an eye only you can't miss
international reactions and notablility of Mageia. Of course wikipedia
pages in other languages must be very hard to find for this person.

We should gather all occurrences of "Mageia" on the web (excluding the
mageia sites of course) and insert this list of a few hundred URLs
into the discussion page.
Listing them at Mageia doesn't seem to help - there are already lots
of reviews in many languages listed on the press page.
