No, this is not related. It can only be an official site if it bears
the same contents of the official site. How would you guarantee that
the contents in your italian site is the same as on mageia.org? As
long as you can't do that it is a 3rd-party site.

Ok, why don't you participate in creating all these good things for
the whole Mageia community instead of just caring for the italian?
Mageia is not about French or Germans or Italians or Americans, it's
about the whole community. Therefore it is the goal of Mageia to
achieve equal information and support for all, not just one local

Again, you can setup everything you want but it will neo tbe the
offical place. The official place is http://mageia.org - and it is up
to all of us (including you) to make it a place which delivers all
these services you want.
