Hi Bradley

I helped with the install screen texts quite a lot, and made sure the 
graphics designer had made the install screen images with the marketing 
team text, two different versions in fact. It's ashame that none of that 
is going to be used in Mageia 2.  Or maybe Anne's using screen shots 
instead idea can have marketing team text's as part of it?

To give an idea what final installer screen texts would have been or 
been like after some changes:

1. Mageia is more than just a Linux distribution: it'sa community of 
users, developers, and advocates from around the world. (18 words)

2. Mageia is international - you can use it and be part of our community 
in your own language. (17 words)

We need something that explains the repo's, or makes it clear, that 
loads of applications can be quickly downloaded and installed for 3. (Seb)

3. Mageia has lots of different types of applications ready for  quick 
easy install - Office, Internet, Development, Education, and more. (19 

4. Mageia Control Center allows the easy set upofuser accounts, 
hardware, software, networking, security and more. (17words)

5. Using Mageia meansyou are part of our community - please get 
involved! www.mageia.org (13 words)

Pretty good aren't they? Shame none of them will be being used in Mageia 
2 it seems. I guess they can be used in Mageia 3 though instead or 
something similar.

Indeed I have had major issues with that before, emails not appearing on 
the mailing list untill much later, went to the system admins team 
channel a few weeks or so ago, when this happended as well for example. 
Plus ended up sending a message again to this mailing list to find out 
if it was working properly or not which it wasn't at the time, and so 
also ended up with the message twice on this mailing list.
