Well, actually my thinking was that Round 1 would just get the ideas out 
there without worrying about the rendering. Round 2 would be more 
focused on rendering - taking the concepts from round 1 and 
creating/polishing the images.

Round 3 might be a decision point.

Good idea; I'll start a new page for round 2.

Probably hold off on that level of granularity until round 3 I think.

Some other things to consider - the default firefox home page graphics 
(banner), default apache page when you set up apache on fedora, maybe 
some little buttons/banners folks could use on their websites, banner 
for the front page of hehe i could go on. Maybe 
have one split - artwork for OS and supporting artwork for marketing/etc

I can do this. Thanks.

It is - great point!
