 From your link:

     * Zebra
     * Giraffe
     * ..."

It looks like a cool project: "who lives near a cool zoo and could take 
a nice photo of a zebra? or a giraffe?"

We can ask people to contribute in a pool of images as large as 
possible, let the package maintainers so select a subset to be included 
as default in the distro and leave the others online for manual 
installation (think: photo zebra, vector zebra, cartoon zebra, baby 
zebra, caricature zebra).

And not last: we want a user pictures collection to be distro specific, 
upstreamed to GNOME or upstreamed to f.d.o (GDM and KDM)?

As for technical details[1], it seems we currently can use only jpg and 
png (no svg) and the maximum size is 128x128
