Ah, thx for the information and your efforts!

IMHO more important than being up-to-date in one day with all news is
the availability of the information at one common address, that's
blog.mageia.org. No problem to take your time, the point is that
people of your language who don't know about the Mageia Google group
(or even don't know about Google groups at all) can find the
information when they go to the Mageia site.
