Being patience, if it is not much to ask. I don't think I could find 
something faster by now. This connection is very expensive and hard to 
maintain where I'm living at.

Nice. Most of my attention now is focused on centos-art.sh script and 
its documentation. However, there are already some artistic motifs 
inside the repository that could be useful.

It would be very convenient (in the sake of automation) if you could 
define all the images we need to re-brand or update, for each visual 
manifestation The CentOS Project is made of (e.g., Distributions, 
Websites, Promotions, etc.) in order to define their models inside the 
repository. Later, based on such models, graphic designers could create 
the artistic motifs that are applied to such models. The funny think 
here is that you can create several models and several artistic motifs 
and then apply them one another as you need. Everything is done with the 
centos-art.sh script which uses the directory structure that is being 
uploaded to https://projects.centos.org/svn/artwork/trunk/.

I would like to inform that the http://wiki.centos.org/ArtWork page was 
updated with some of these ideas and would appreciate if you check it 
and fix it as long as needed.

Best Regards,
