That is what I meant - this series is too good an idea to let it slip
away into the "ideas we may put into action some day but never will"
box. We should push this - IMHO it is one of the best marketing ideas
I read so far.

Ah, I see, so it would be a rather sideways entry point. Good.

BTW: I am not so happy about the "bonjourmageia" idea being a
French-only thing. Putting up such a French-only thing would be the
same as if I said, let's do a "WillkommenMageia.de" for a start to let
people know the faces of Mageia. Or if we had started a French forum
first instead of an English forum. We should push international ideas
and sites first, if a local page will copy that or if a local group
will do a localisation, fine and welcome.
