I still think ending up with a choice of quality wallpapers for Edubuntu

Very much agreed, since those have clearly defined specs, I have higher
hopes for those.  I am seeing this pool as a place for filtering some of the
wider areas of Ubuntu wallpapers that exist out there, that aren't grown to
spec: the kind of stuff that are texture walls and light walls, maybe even
some illustrations. Stuff that as of now has no real home, but
is definitely *for* Ubuntu. This is stuff that is *not * going to make it if
included in freecultureshowcase. We could invite/find this stuff and put it
in a a community package, and give it some eyeballs. It would hopefully make
some of these artists willing to work on other stuff with us.

Sergey, I am sure we can work around that. Thanks so much for volunteering!
As the backup, could we simply release on the web?
