I do not think this is against Mandrakesoft, mandrake community already
exists, making it more structured could only benefit the distribution
and as a consequence Mandrakesoft.

My view is to organize the current mandrake developer community, not
to change anything in mandrakesoft. Developers works on the
distribution anyway.
