Re: Fedora-art-list Digest, Vol 5, Issue 34



A message that you sent contained one or more recipient addresses that were
incorrectly constructed:

 "Discussions about the artwork included with Fedora, including icons,
themes, and wallpapers." <fedora-art-list redhat com>: "@" or "."
expected after "fedora-art-list"

This address has been ignored. There were no other addresses in your
message, and so no attempt at delivery was possible.

How about getting a different color for each set? Is it possible?
