Well, of course we're only just starting out, so having a temporary artwork
set/web design/etc was expected. But soon, we should really get an act
together. I'm going to try and start up a process for deliberating on
artwork, in a process influenced by how the LibreOffice guys handled this
process. Confluence looks like it's quite advanced and/or fancy, so this may
be easy to manage.We would most likely be starting off with a general motif
for everything, then eventually building stuff that fits off this motif in
an integrated and sensible manner. I also do have some motif ideas that
I'll contribute too.
