Yes. The debate is not/no more to know if the decision to delete the
previous page was good/fit/justified or not. There were reasons, we
should just take them into account.

Looks good, but I'd remove the whole part about Mandrakesoft/Mandriva
history, that is related, but much more appropriate on a separate page
(Mandriva's one at least) than Mageia's. That doesn't prevent to
explain shortly the why's of this fork, but it should not be that
extensive on prior Mandriva history.

References are good, but be careful, there are many ones in mageia.org
(not forbidden because in this case, they are the references for the
citation, but the article content should be supported by other,
independant [news] sites too).

I believe Trish had opened a piratepad somewhere to prepare the page?
(can't find the URL back) Could you try to get in sync?
