There have been many discussions in varying places, including where it
belongs, the ubuntu-art mailing list.

There have been various efforts over the years and there are new ones in
planning stages.

While I'm sure you have the best intentions, posting on several mailing
lists at once is not a good idea, as people subscribed to some/all of
the list with see lots of duplicated mails, while people that are not on
all lists will sooner or later not get to see all relevant posts.

For this reason, I like would ask everyone to not reply, except on the
artwork list. (You can argue I shouldn't have either ... well, fine :)
