Hi Bruno.

I can only share Pascal vision, sorry if it's not done in a format that permit
translation, modification, it's just not done.

Huh, strange view. It is licensed free and you can do whatever you want with it (filter, redraw ...).

What limits is limiting to SVG, because as said, not everything can be done in SVG. Take a look at the upcoming Fedora 16 artwork. It's a hand drawing.

Markus, excuse me but that kind of sentence
-> still with c

"For me, marketing material, should not make use distro artwork ..."
is something I can't afford. wtf are we or want we create that artwork team,
or just let play individuals with their pencils ?

Don't misunderstand me, any work done is good, but you have to understand also
what we all want.
I vote yes for green, but it was for the svg Richard made. why because I know
that we can reuse it and adapt it to pretty any
kind of material we will need.

I still think marketing material should be independent from distro release. If so it can easily be reused.

E.g. on FrOSCon we had no material that fits the distro release. Just a green poster and the flyers (with the design Robert has reused for his wallpaper proposal) and it was totally ok. There are still a hundreds of these left, and they can easily be reused on the next event.

Can you perhaps see the advantage of distro independent marketing material now?
