THE default wallpaper ? :)

Would it be possible to have the banner in .xcf format with filters so
we could translate the text and put it everywhere on the local web
please?

Well...

1) A decision hasn't been made about the default theme elements and I'm not sure when that call will be made (but it should be soon as the release date is getting closer and closer.) If enough people on this list say they like something, though, it will help;

2) The engineers prefer that the wallpapers/theme don't mention the release number. This is in case for the release afterwards, if there isn't artwork available, the default wallpaper isn't for the old release number. :) A wallpaper I did way back for FC3 [1] was rejected for this reason :-p The text translation issue is also another good reason to avoid release-specific artwork, although does 'Core n' get translated?

I'm curious why you mentioned XCF as a translatable format? Do you have experience with this? The artwork is currently in SVG (there is a 'download' link in deviant art you can grab the SVG from - the link doesn't stick out very well :-p) so you might be able to get away with doing a sed replace. The text was not turned to paths.
