Dag, could we work together in the graphical display building ?

I'd appretiate a table or somthing with relevant dates, concepts  ...
one for CentOS and maybe one for RHEL ... maybe we could open a page
in the wiki to list this kind of information and to list how these
graphical display should be conceived. It would be a place to put
ideas, progress and whatever people consider helpfull.

Karan: The logo image and Login link in
https://projects.centos.org/trac/artwork seem to be desapierd. Do you
know something about it ?

> Maintenance.

Yep, I mistaken the word here ... I'll fix it on the next render :).
