Especially since there's no link to add your blog. If the council 
members decide to open it up to all users, that sounds great to me.

marcom seems a little vague on this, we're working on it to regain 
access to it.

I agree one is preferable, but I also think it should include all 
community members. If our selling point is we're all Mageia, then anyone 
who agrees to the code of conduct should be welcome. But that’s just my 
humble opinion.
