May I ask *why* we now have two pages for essentially the same thing?
As per my original email in introducing the ReleaseGraphics page [1], I believe paragraph three explains: 1) my creation of a new page, 2) why I had not overwritten the ThemingOverview page, and 3) a proposal for what the ThemingOverview page could be for. Nobody objected, rather...Rahul commented that it made sense [2], and you yourself suggested linking it to the front Artwork page [3].

Hope this clarifies any misunderstandings.

I hate to say it really doesn't. Those don't explain why you would take a wiki page that is nearly a year old (and likely has internal and external links pointing to it), duplicate and modify its content, and fail to credit those who created the original content and actually take full credit for the content itself.

ReleaseGraphics was created with the aim of providing a clear listing of the pieces and set of specifications of what I, as Visual Designer of the Red Hat Desktop Team, make sure exists at each release. The specifications listed were those provided to me by my team lead Matthias Clasen, Jeremy Katz, and Than Ngo, throughout my years as the art maintainer at Red Hat Desktop and also to further supplement the creation of the ReleaseGraphics page. This page is to provide those interested in creating a complete set of release graphics for consideration in inclusion of Fedora by myself and the Desktop team.

I took full responsibility of the content. Thus requesting that modifications be discussed on Fedora-art-list or sent to me first so that I may confirm with the engineers whom the images would be distributed to. Being that this directly relates to my role within Red Hat's Desktop Group (as I go through this process several times for RHEL releases) I will ultimately be the one responsible for providing the team with the necessary usable graphics. Therefore, if the creator follows the specs I've complied on that page, I would be responsible in seeing that it works for the engineers and any errors would not be of the creator who had followed my recommendations.

And so with deviations and personal comments, I take responsibility of the content of the page with Release Graphic information separate of all other specs that a general ThemingOverview page should include. The page includes pieces from many people, I did not credit nor do I take credit. However, I am responsible for the quality of graphics that makes it in for each release, so with the opening of the Release design...the ReleaseGraphics page is therefore a guide and checklist for design interested in being a useful set for the release.

I hope that this clarifies our situation and I apologize if this is disappointing to you. If you feel that ReleaseGraphics was a duplication without a year long history, then please feel free to revert back to the original ThemingOverview version. I created ReleaseGraphics for those interested in understanding/creating the various pieces needed for a complete useful Themed Release set.
