I don't disagree with the fundamental idea here, but I think before
you start diverting people's valuable time with this you need to get
approval and guidelines from Frank and sabdfl - only through those two
can anything be DONE.
People producing artwork based on the guidelines you have layed out
are very unlikely to produce work of a style that will get into the
distro - if you look closely you will notice there have been _huge_
numbers of submissions that do almost exactly what you are suggesting
over the last few weeks (see
For example, over the last week we worked closely with sabdfl to get a
glassy logo that he felt was up to scratch - the results of this are
published on the wiki at
I _do_ really feel strongly about getting new art into Edgy, but I
know that in order to do it we need to work closely with sabdfl and
design things HE approves, not just thinks LIKE what he LIKES - we
have done that already and it wasn't good enough, which is WHY we are
in this situation.
