Ah, and what the hell then entitles you to claim that "FC6" has had the "best" artwork of all "Fedora" releases? In my opinion, "FC6" artwork already showed first signs of sloppyness. Only think of the installer "blender" image which used the glass ball when the installed distribution used a reflective one.

I was replying to a post from Rahul where he stated "Fedora Core 6 artwork turned out to be even better"

I have the impression that the 3-4 persons contributing the majority of postings to this list think of themselves as being representative of the user community which is obviously wrong. There has been no representative vote on the final theme. A first tentative one showed "Borealis" and "Flying high" on par. Then there was a second one whose only subject was the "Flying high" theme, leaving no other choice to the voters, although there have been some clear caveats on this list regarding "Flying High".

Votes? There was no voting process, the voting on fedoraforum.org was informal.

Read this: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Artwork/FC7Themes

"There is no formal voting process for themes right now. You vote with your time and effort! So if you really like a theme idea, chip in and help refine it! For our next round (round 3), we'll take stock of how the themes have evolved and try to figure out which ones we need to choose between if there is no clear standout candidate."

Under these circumstances, I do prefer a single qualified individual [DF] who steers the whole process in a proven manner than a small group hijacking artwork development.

Everybody is welcome to submit suggestions, and John has come up with some nice ideas. However, the number of postings or submissions of the interested persons can by no means establish any kind of prerogative with respect to the final result.

Read again the wiki page I pointed you above. The page was written by the founder of the Art project, was discussed on the list and we had consensus about it.
So what are you saying about hijacking?
