Thank you Nicu for reminding us about the deadlines and driving this 

I have been hesitant to start really driving this because I was hoping I 
could get you all a more firm answer on whether or not the artwork would 
definitely be considered as the default theme. Since I have not been 
able to do that, and we are quickly running out of time, here is the one 
thing I can promise you: I will definitely find a way to package and 
make easily installable at least some of the artwork we come up with if 
it isn't considered for the default artwork. Let's just focus on coming 
up with the best theme we can.

I've slipped the schedule a bit: I added revised dates and the full set 
of Art Team milestones for F8 to the wiki page Nicu set up earlier:


So the new deadline for the first round, which is just are the concept 
proposals, is Wednesday, July 11th.

+1 Also, if there was a proposal from the Fedora 7 process that didn't 
make it that you liked, feel free to propose it for F8.

Yep, let's focus on coming up with the best artwork we can and blow 
everyone away with it. :)
