[CentOS-devel] Distribution Artwork and logos.

Recently we've had some requests from the community as to how they could
contribute various pieces of design, artwork or wallpaper.

In order to make it more convenient for such contributions, I've moved
the legacy artwork git instance to
https://git.centos.org/summary/sig-core!artwork-archive.git. This should
be considered legacy and reference only.

To facilitate new artwork contributions, I've created
https://github.com/CentOS/Artwork which will be mirrored at

This will be the authoritative repository for logos, branding, design,
etc. It will also allow contributors to submit pull requests for their
contributions, such as backgrounds and other creative artwork.

Right now, both these repositories are bare because we need to have a
bit of a discussion around the layout within them. I don't claim to be
an artist in any sense of the term, so I'm not going to dictate a
structure that might impede the work from people who actually know what
they're doing.

The two possible layouts I have in mind are:

1. exploded directory structure for the various source tarballs related
to distro artwork such as centos-logos.

2. Named directory structures for the various image types.
logos/{svg,png}, desktop/<resolution>/png, etc.

Comments, suggestions and pull requests are very much welcomed from
those of you with artistic tendencies.
