Hey All:

Klaatu produces SlackerMedia a multimedia spin of Slackware Linux. He 
has also published excellent multimedia tools and documentation 
<http://www.slackermedia.info/about/>.  I was especially impressed by 
his multimedia workflow graphics 
<http://www.slackermedia.info/workflows/>.  As per the correspondence 
below, Klaatu has explicitly offered these materials for our use!  As I 
understand it, Ubuntustudio currently lacks uniform, branded 
documentation. Klaatu's workflow graphics pack 
<http://www.slackermedia.info/downloads/workflows.tbz> could fill that 
need.  I suggest we review these materials with an eye toward adoption 
in Ubuntustudio.

I am shocked that I failed to make the licensing clear. Thanks for the
bug report :-)

The graphics, as with everything I do, can be licensed in one of two
ways: either CC-BY-SA v4.0 or as Gnu Free Documentation License (GFDL),
whichever fits easiest for you.

For Ubuntu, I don't really care about attribution (you're the good
guys); but if you give credit, then please give credit to "Klaatu at

If you need to change the licensing so it fits in better with your work
at Ubuntu Studio, let me know. I'm flexible.

Glad you like the graphics! if you need anything, let me know. I think
UbuntuStudio is amazing, and I'm happy to help.

If you're looking for more docs, checkout the Slackermedia Handbook

and also all articles in the Multimedia Makers column on OpenSource.com

It's all CC-BY-SA / GFDL, so use whatever you want.
