Hey Jeff, always good to see your name around here. Has the artwork
deadline slipped? The date we got from Jane Siber was today (September
29th) as the final day for any artwork submissions.

Since we have your attention, maybe you can answer another question
that's been haunting us. If you want the wallpapers to be our focus
for Breezy (well, and Andrew's icons), how should we present them to
Canonical? Should our team pick our favorite six and pass those along,
or should we just keep throwing our stuff up on the art website and
let you guys pick your favorites? I imagine the voting part is going
to be the most difficult task, so if we don't even need to do that,
we'll skip that headache.

If you DO want us to vote on our favorites, is there some
functionality on launchpad (or elsewhere) to do a poll/vote type
thing? Counting random votes via email and IRC could be quite a task.

Any input would be appreciated!
