Initially the environment was conceived to render artwork locally by
selection ... there was no imminent need to version rendered images.
They could be created at any time.

Now, that we are planning to add rendered images in svn repo for Trac
wiki (and maybe in other web sites) use ... someone will need to
render the images and do upload them ... if we do it in trunk, each
time the template change we'll need to update the imgs trunk too.

Don't know if it is correct but personally I would like to have a
place where the images do no change each time the template change. I
know we don't have to upload the new rendered result if we don't want
it to, but in that case the content of imgs trunk wouldn't be
reflecting  templates as they are.

So in that point, and if we end up using the rendered images inside
svn, is why I suggested to use some kind tag mechanism that let us
keep a somehow static image for that use, something stable for a
while, until the next modifications in trunk get ready to be referred

Maybe it is time to define the life cycle of artwork rendering.

Of course, that first tagged version is inexistent at this moment ...
so maybe that's what we need to solve.

Again trunk doesn't seems to me to be the place for something relative
stable we should refer to... at this moment it doesn't change to much
but in a future it may do.

I would like to know your opinions, suggestions guys,
