Just noticed a reply to my message in the archives, so sorry if this
response is a bit late.

All I meant by public domain, is I don't care who does what to them
(and since I made the images, no one else should care either :-).
If one of those other licenses conveys anything close to that spirit,
I'm happy call that the license these images are under. After reading
the description, CC-ZERO sounds awful close to me.
Recently, yevlempy  and myself, Kishan  decided to write a
desktop application (game) based on the "Spelling Bee" format popular
across the world. Read more about 'spelling bee' here. But, being
a game, it requires to have a nice UI appealing to the target
user-base, in this case, children of 8-16 yrs.  would give a proper
underatanding and a somewhat-demo of the kind of app. we are planning
it to be.
And the problem lies herein. Neither of us have any experience
reagrding artwork/design and we are not good at it either. I know some
PyGtk and have used the Glade interface designer before. Sitting down
for a couple of hours, I managed to come up with this  And, I think
it looks ugly. So we request you guys to guide us on how to go about
Any suggestions/feedback and pointers would be of great help!

Since not all the websites have finished sites or distinctive designs,
Jef put together a mockup using flags for each country (with the caveat
it would need to be adjusted so the flags were a bit smaller):
I know there's a lot of sensitivity to the usage of national symbols in
general; is it advisable to avoid the usage of flags or do you think it
would be okay in this instance?
Based on the feedback I've gotten so far, I worked up a new revision of
the slide template. You can get a copy (along with all the
artwork/source files) here: http://www.fightingcrane.com/emily/fedora/
Let me know what you think!
I just noticed that F14 is going to include gnome-shell. Does anyone
have any thoughts on gnome-shell theming? it uses CSS for theming, so it
would be very easy to have some Fedora friendly gnome-shell theming out

OK, here it comes: I actually discovered I have two different
collections of images I made myself and therefore can submit
with no potential legal problems.

This points to both collections:

There are two links on the above page, one is for "quilt" the
other is for "trees".

That would be me: Tom Horsley

As explained in the pages above, the original images were made
by me. I guess that makes those links the original URL.

I'm perfectly happy to declare them public domain.
Just wanted to say that I've started a wiki page  for a content
review of the current www.fpo page. Everyone's free to track it and
change/add/corrent stuff as they like. Of course there's the
discussion page if you to let me know something. :)
