Fedora Release Graphics Specs

As the creation of graphics for the next Fedora release is being open 
for design, it will be worthwhile to know what pieces are needed for a 
complete and useful set.  I've constructed a Fedora Release Graphics 
wiki (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Artwork/ReleaseGraphics) containing 
a list of components (in general order of appearance), illustrations, 
and specifications that goes into redesigning a release. Also included 
are screenshots of Fedora Core 5 and 6 to illustrate the possible 
changes as well as to show Fedora Core's visual progression.

These are the notes and specifications I've accumulated from having 
completed 4-5 release designs. I realize that some of the info posted 
might not agree with README.txt but this is what I've found to work upon 
implementation and I will be updating it as our technology changes. If 
you find serious discrepancies or have questions, contact me or post to 
this list.

Its content is similar to that of the ThemingOverview page, but I 
hesitated to overwrite it as it contained brief sections on Metacity and 
GTK which I chose not to cover.  The reasoning being that they do not 
change per release nor are they really effected by the subject/look 
chosen for the release (though they could).  Thinking ahead, and if 
there are no objections, I'd like to revamp the ThemingOverview wiki to 
link to ReleaseGraphics, thus clearing the overlapped information, and 
further expand the list to include such specs for screensavers and other 
themable graphics that are not necessarily tied to each release design
