We agreed on selecting only on flickr and explicitly stating so on the
wiki, at least.

Quite a while before UDS, I added the statement to the wiki, informed
you and got no complaints at all.

I said we should outright reject wallpapers on the wiki to not confuse
anyone. There was no opposition and my impression was that Ivanka and
you, Kenneth, were OK with that, but it wasn't noted in the Gobby doc.
So there, we only have: "Be explicit about the fact that submissions on
the wiki will not be included", as seen on:

My main concern here is that one path is chosen and followed through the
whole cycle, so negative surprises are avoided.

My other concern is that I never again want to deal the wiki surge
protection warning.
