I think this is an interesting topic, worth discussing on the Art list, 
so I move it there.

If fact, we didn't had so far more than one proposal going to the final 
state (all graphics created), that usually stopped at Round 2 (a 
wallpaper and a few additional graphics).

The intention is not to run it as a contest, so we don't have a clear 
second or third place, it is supposed to work by consensus, where a 
large number of people converge in working in one concept.

There is a very new initiative to create a gallery with additional 
I think that is the right place to upload and share the images that 
didn't made the release.
