This is certainly your call but what is the message you sending to the
artist who offered to share their talent with the Ubuntu community? Many for
the first time. The flickr group in question was created simply because the
original site simply did not work.
I fail to understand the harm in saying post to either group and regroup for
Natty +1. I certainly don't see this as a burden.
If this is your final decision I will alert folks as requested.
