So you're selling me out like that are you? GEEZ.... :-P

Yes, I had planned on taking either the background currently on the main
website, and cutting it up to update the banner on seven.centos.org, or
using what Marcus and Tigert had done already for the seven backgrounds.
Currently I'm using the design Marcus posted in

What's on seven.centos.org right now is pretty much a standard wp theme
called blue peace. I chose it because it was similar in nature to some
of the curved blue design from the c5 days and looked to be easily
adaptable, although as Christoph points out, I hadn't changed it yet.

All that aside, these are really good works, please keep it up! Any
chance you could use that same inspiration on
or similar?
