In principle someone inside the project has to chose the site and setup and affiliated account. Someone who understands the financial workings of opensuse project. Once that done we can contact our artists and see who is interested. Writing some emails should be fine for me you find me on irc under ealin...
Nah, actually, that's not really true. When it comes to financial stuff - there isn't much. We can't ask for money because we don't have a foundation yet - that will take a few months at least before that is done. So until then, money doesn't play a role.
If you would set up an account and share the account info with a few ppl like rhlim and me that would be just fine.
Than yes, it's time to contact the artists, see if they have time to help out. Gnokii seems busy but maybe someone else has some time...

here is a list of sites that do what I said
http://www.skinit.com/ http://www.istyles.com/ http://www.gelaskins.com http://www.infectious.com http://www.schtickers.com/ http://www.decalgirl.com
It will be great if anybody else knows other sites.
Like the idea. Initially we won't be able to get money from this, however, as we don't have a Foundation yet. But once we have this might be a source of revenue.
In the meantime, we could indeed get our artwork on there. I checked out a few sites and it seems it won't be hard to get artwork on there. So the question is mainly - is there someone who's interested in this, wants to drive it.
That means bugging artists to get artwork and uploading it to the sites...

Mine is a 13 inch macbook pro.... not too small not to big... it does the job and everybody is happy...
I suspect that one of the many sites that do skin crap... maybe allow the artists to upload their work and share the revenue... I was thinking maybe the opensuse-art,boosters,steering committee, marketing, pr or whatever is the name of the people "guilty" for promoting can associate the project with one of them... and get some small revenue for the project...

I have a macbook pro aluminium crap on which I run opensuse... Due to my usage the poor thing it is exposed to scratches... my wrist watch mainly... As I have no intention of getting rid of the mac, the watch or the habit, I decided to get a skin to protect the mac...
This is where I got an idea... It seems that there are plenty of websites that offer the possibility to skin your laptop. I was wondering if at project level we can "associate" in a way with one of them... The project provides official artwork to skin the device, we the supporters can buy it, for each bought the project gets back few shekels...
What do you think about? would be a good way to increase visibility of the project and maybe get some money for it too.
We would need to know the requirements (tos, type of image, size, etc) first.
