           Summary: Add to Mageia 1 release notes and to news/blog that it
                    has KDE 4.6.5 updates
           Product: Websites
           Version: trunk
          Platform: i586
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Normal
         Component: www.mageia.org
        AssignedTo: mageia-webteam at mageia.org

Mandriva 2011 is out. Time to update my Mandriva 2010.2 I thought and install a
new distribution. I saw on mageia.org website that Mageia 1 has according to
its release notes KDE 4.6.3.
And I read that Mageia 2 will only be released in april 2012.
Comparing this to Mandriva 2011 which has KDE 4.6.5 I choose the latter as that
one has the latest KDE version.
I checked the news on mageia.org website (the first page): no mention of new
KDE updates. I checked the mageia blog: also no mention of any new KDE updates.
Thus my choice was Mandriva 2011.

Luckily a few hours later I began to browse the forum (I think I wanted to
check if Mageia also had updates/backports repositories) and I stumbled on the
"[SOLVED] KDE 4.6.5 update for Mageia 1" post in General discussions about
Now that's what I needed to know!
In the beginning of Mageia I visited the website from time to time but as there
wasn't much activity yet I forgot a little about it. I'm happily surprised now
seeing that Mandriva's development is gathering momentum and as a new Linux
distribution really might be viable.

Please add to the news (blog) on the first page of mageia.org website any
important/relevant item like the KDE 4.6.5 update that may hook newcomers to
mageia. The latest news dates from Jul 17 2011: this is no good, write news
items every week or every two weeks about Mageia's progress.
Add it as a note to the release notes of Mageia 1 so people won't think that
Mageia 1 is outdated (don't add it at the bottom of the page but close to the
line of KDE or if the release notes are not allowed to be changed just mention
on the page of Mageia 1 in red letters that updates continually being added).

I do will install Mandriva 2011 first on my netbook only to check it out. After
a week I will install Mageia 1 with KDE 4.6.5.

And please think of more ways of recruiting new users for Mageia.

I've also donated 50 euro to Mageia, don't disappoint us.
