Hi there,

below a request received on the press@ contact and I believe this is
the best place to sort it out (btw, we ought to know how we dispatch
this address within communication team as well).

Welcome are your input and handling (how to refine this proposal, what
to propose, who to propose this to, should we even do it or not)?

Hi Romain,

I just learnt about the Mageia Planet launch, congratulations. It's
good news for users and especially for Muktware, as we have been
keeping a close eye on the development of Mageia ever since the fork
was announced. The Mageia Planet will be a very good resource for
staying updated with ongoing development.

I have a proposal in mind. At Muktware we are always looking for
exclusive and useful content for home/business users. At the same
time, we also want to contribute to the Mageia community. How about we
start an exclusive/dedicated section for Mageia, written by Mageia

1. Mageia contributors can use Muktware as a platform to exclusively
talk about features of Mageia or the packages they are working on.
2. A Howto/Tips & Tricks section contributed by Mageia contributors
about how users can use Mageia or GNU/Linux to do things easily.

There can be several such opportunities for the Mageia community to
interact with its potential users. The target audience will be
'home/business' users. It will also help spread the word about Mageia
and Linux in general.

In return, we will contribute $10 per article to Mageia. This is just
an initial proposal, what do you think? If you like the idea we can
work on further details.

Best Wishes
