Thanks Wolfgang.

Your concerns have been well received. Just keep reminding us of this. I 
think "targeting groups" campaign can be better described as projects to 
enlarge the Mageia family branches. It is not, in any way, meant to 
dilute the main vision behind the Mageia project. In my opinion the 
Mageia distro should be seen as an "open arms and welcoming distro" 
rather than a "crossed arms and restrictive distro".
