>> In the continuity of the WWC speech, ennael and I think it could be
>> worth it to setup a series of posts in the blog about:
>>  - what developers can find in Mageia (technology stacks that suit them)
>>  - what users can find in Mageia (tools that help them)
>>  - what people can do with Mageia (what gets done with it in the real
>> world out there)
>>  - what people can do for Mageia (contributors, in what, how and where).
>> Those both to show what is in, and get feedback about what could be in.
>> That would be a long series and the start would be with the technology
>> stacks (perl, python, ruby, php, etc.) in the form of some global
>> overview and one-on-one interviews with involved packagers/developers.
>> All in all, that would make 4 categories, and maybe need 4 distinct
>> persons to manage each category. In the best case scenario, we would

>> Advice? I can start a draft for the whole structure to announce this,

So we are back at the "Who are our targets?" discussion?
