I've also been lurking on the list for a while, only to contribute when I didn't have to be too technical.  Meaning, do JUST the art and not have to package.

I'm one of those that Martin talks about....
>>>>>Part of the problem with art from a packaging side is that very few artists know how to package themes, wallpapers and other things, should we have an education project based around that<<<<<<<

I know that if I had adequate time, I'd be able to learn the mechanics of packaging.  However, until that day, I'm seeking fun and EASY work... like t-shirt designs and simple marketing materials.

All include packaging.

Yes.  Very interested.

Not sure what this is.

This is a great idea!  I'd be interested in helping brainstorm around this idea. However, not sure how else I can contribute.

Computer Based Training... would be nice to work on the future of CBT for Ubuntu.  Also, see my website for more... www.deamillion.com

Haven't met you yet... maybe you are scary? ;)
