I think, freeze is irrelevant here. It's highly probable it won't be on
any of the official spins, so having the package released at the same
day as GA is IMHO fine.

Good uestion. How does 1600x1200 and 1600x1050 as the minimum reqs

Cool. I think Mo should have the last word about the deadline, but you
can do some work nevertheless, should you have some spare time to do it.

Another question is, should we package all the wallpapers on the
wallpaper extras wiki [1], or are we going to hand-pick a few?

Also, I don't recall the conversation back then, but when googling, I
found this proposal [2] from Ian that sound like a pretty big
improvement over our current set-up. It would require probably these

1. reorganise the wallpaper extras wiki, create categories and templates
2. create an art-team space on fedora hosted (with git for the stored
3. create a script (be it in python, ruby, perl, bash, whatever) to pull
the images together with info (author, cc attribution, ...) from wiki
and put them in a sane format into the git repo

Note that we would benefit from the fedorahosted space even more - i.e.
we would have good place to store the release graphics (especially the
wallpapers which currently contain the source archive only within the
srpm) have a place to track our tasks (ticket system) and could also be
a better place than wiki for the design queue.
