Seriously, I hope you didn't read my message as being overly negative 
Samuele! It's extremely impressive work you're doing.

I think that if we end up with more than one theme that makes it to 
round three, that we should hold a Fedora community vote similar to how 
we choose the release name (the Board could maybe be given some veto 
power in exceptional circumstances to pre-whittle down the choices as in 
the release name suggestion process but none of the artwork we've got 
thus far I think would require that.)

Do you think setting up such a vote would be possible, Paul? We'll know 
which ones make it to round three by September 1 so we'd want to vote as 
soon as possible after that.

Any runner-ups should be packaged and available. I understand the way 
theming works this may be difficult, but at the very least we should be 
able to ship the runner-up wallpapers in base Fedora so they'll always 
available for selection in the backgrounds capplet.
