Provisional governance of the project is in the hands of Mandriva ex-employees

Which problems?????

You don't see because you don't want to. I follow all Mageia MLs and
read Romain's and Anne's mails. Just because they don't write every 20
minutes it means that they are playing in the beach.

> Who is actually the captain, or most contributers ?

There's no captain yet. That's why you must put your name in the wiki.
Then, with people who joined in the wiki, teams will be formed.

It's just common sense. HTML mails are "heavier" that plain text. You
don't need lot of emoticons crap to make your point here.

They do it. But maybe you can make it better and create a whole
foundation in 24 hours.

As they said in ML, Wiki is just provisional for people who wants to
join Mageia.

OK, maybe I'm being a little reiterative but, what foundation?????
They are building it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congratulations for your skills, but you should stop writing FUD
because you are not helping much. And you are creating panic between
newcomers. You don't affect me, but many newcomers will think that
this is "mafia" and mageia wants their money, and meetings are in dark

Stop FUDing, PLEASE!!!!!
