As you may know, we have an open process [1] for submitting artwork 
proposals for Fedora 8.
The *tentative* deadline for the first round [2] is approaching fast, in 
one week and we don't have yet *any* formal submission. With a tight 
schedule for F8 I think this date may slip, but only with a few days.

So do not be afraid and send your proposals, Fedora needs you!

I understand that graphics in F7 have a high degree of polishing and may 
look intimidating for a new contributor, but:
- this is only round 1, the focus is on concepts, not on polishing, for 
that we have subsequent rounds;
- we need *something* to start from;
- the desire is to have somewhat simplified graphics in the next release;
- this may be our *only* chance to prove ourselves as a team and 
establish us a player in the Fedora world and the windows of opportunity 
may be only a few months large.

I also understand some of may not be very happy with what happened at le 
last release, but I believe we learned a lot from that experience and 
can do better this time.

(sorry if I stepped on someone's toes with this reminder)
